    Your computer/browser is infected by some type of virus/malware.

    Well, well. You have the infamous "Google search redirect virus". Don't worry, I had this and Hitman Pro sorted it out. Just use the free trial as you should hopefully only need to use it once. [​IMG]

    When it happened to me I uninstalled my browser, did a full scan with Malwarebytes and SUPERAntiSpyware and then reinstalled a freshly downloaded copy of my browser. That fixed it for me.

    EDIT: Gave you some links in case you can't Google them yourself [​IMG]

    I JUST fixed this problem. There are many possibilities. First of all the one that got me is one that affects all popular browsers such as Firefox and IE. I had to reinstall Firefox and restore my host file to the original so that your DNS is not messed up. Use a program called "autoruns" to get rid of all bad start ups, services, LSA providers, and use process manager to stop all bad processes.

    I know of that solution it worked when the virus first came out, and the virus that you have currently can be slightly more evolved and advanced to take out system drivers such as atapi.sys which is not detectable by Hitman Pro. If it does not solve the problem you can ask me.
