Searches Redirected

Toshiba SATELLITE

Specs: Windows 7
Using Windows 7, Firefox, Avast (free)
Issue(s) Searches are being redirected. General searches sent to random search sites, any searches on virus removal sent to random spy/malware sites.
Tried Looked in Programs in Control Panel and everything seemed ok in there, Restoring.

Rkill did not list any terminated processes.

Any suggestions? I don't know a whole lot about computers, but I'd like to be able to fix this myself as opposed to taking it to someone or somewhere. Thanks in advance :)

So I tried TDSS killer and I had the same problem. Nothing found. I recently dld Chroms, and have noticed that I don't get redirected on that, so I uninstalled Mozilla and now it seems to be fine.

Could it have been a problem within the dld version of the browser?

(and thank you, by the way, for the suggestions!!)

I really don't think so...so Malwarebytes didn't come up with anything? That really surprises me.
