Search Engine Redirect?

Specs: Windows XP
Hello there. I've gotten an annoying little virus that on any search engine I use, it redirects me to some random, ad-filled page that isn't even related to what I'm searching for.

I've scanned my computer several times with Panda Anti-Virus, PC Pitstop Exterminate, and Avast! They found nothing at all.

I'm lost on what to do, can someone please help me?

Hi there, please try to scan with Hitman Pro 3.5. found here: http://download.cnet.com/Hitman-Pro... or try scanning with Combo Fix found here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/com... and see if that doesn't help rid of the Google Redirect (I'm guessing that's your default search engine?) virus.

I tried both of those, Hitman Pro found a Trojan and deleted it, and Combofix deleted a good number of files. But it didn't fix the problem...
