Web browser searches keep redirecting.

Specs: Windows XP, Pentium 4 / 512MB
In the past week, anytime I web browse on Google or Yahoo. I type in an item in the search engine, click on that item and get redirected to a completely different site. I updated the definitions on my Norten anti-virus, ran a full scan and wasn't able to solve the problem. Tried Malware-bytes and Ad-aware and still could not get the issue resolved. I know it's a hijacking program. Nothing I've tried so far seems to work towards ridding my system of it.
