    Browsers keep redirecting to random sites


    I've had a problem for about 5 days now where every time i click on a search link in any browser and any search engine i get redirected to random websites.

    I've ran sophos anti virus, malwarebytes and antispyware but nothing seems to fix this error. I've also uninstalled and reinstalled the different browsers to see if this makes a difference.

    All 3rd party toolbars have also been removed from my browsers.

    Can anyone please help me because i'm at breaking point!
