It would help to know the sites you're asking about but I suspect you have some sort of redirect virus. Run a full scan for viruses & malware from Safe Mode.

Copy & Paste the contents of your scan logs please.

After doing riider's suggestions, here are some more.

1: Download & run Unhide

http://download.bleepingcomputer.co...
To run Unhide, simply download it to your desktop and then double-click on the Unhide icon. The program will open a black box and start making the files on your fixed disks visible again. Please note, that this program will not unhide removable drives like flash cards and usb drives as the FakeHDD rogues do not target these types of drives. Once it has finished, the program will display a Windows alert stating that your files have been restored. You should then reboot your computer for all of the settings to go into effect.
Copy & Paste the contents of the log. Let me know if it doesn't produce a log please.

2: Reboot

3: Run TDSSKiller. Copy & Paste the contents of the log in your reply.

✔ Best Answer
RJTOWER ,
A redirect is quite easy to fix. Try these 3 progs in EXACTLY the order listed and DO NOT reboot untill after the last scan has run
rkill.exe http://www.technibble.com/rkill-rep...
tdss killer http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/dow...
Malwarebytes http://www.filehippo.com/download_m...

If the above doesn't fix it, try the SAME thing, ONLY this time in safemode and fix all it finds
