Default FireFox Browser Redirection Problems

Hi there,

I first noticed this in Firefox, but then it also happens in IE. whenever I do a search in either google or yahoo I get redirected to a weird site (but it only happens some of the time...some times I get to the real site, and whenever I do get the weird webpage, I just back out of it and click on the same link and I get to the page i'm supposed to get to).

I attached the gooredfix.txt file to this. Hopefully someone can help out and let me know how to fix it.

I originally downloaded Adware by Lavasoft, Housecall by Treadmicro, and CW Shredder as well as Malwarebytes. And while some of them found stuff, I still had the redirect problem. Then I purchased and downloaded Webroot Secure Anywhere (because of the high marks it was given by PC magazine) and that didn't find I ended up here and found the thread about using gooredfix.txt.
