Need help with auto redirect & pop-ups

Hi all,

I have run both my symantec virus protection as well as my spybot s/d with no hits (aside from a tracking cookie). Every time I click a link from google or bing it redirects me where ever it wants. I also have random pop-ups come up.
I have seen some individual threads for fixes but am in need of some more detailed help, please.

You should also try to scan your computer with malwarebytes antimalware and superantispyware. Download links could be found at http://www.pcrisk.com/top-spyware-r... Both programs are free and does a great job at detecting and removing various infections. Download these programs, install them and update. Before running a full system scan you may want to enter safe mode. Click Start, click Shut down, click Restart, click Ok. During your computer starting process press F8 key on your keyboard multiple times until you see Windows Advanced Option menu, then select Safe mode from the list. After this procedure run a full system scan.
