Redirect Issue

I've had an issue lately. At first I thought it was just FireFox but discovered it happens in IE as well. The thing is that when I Google search and then click on a link, I get redirected to some random site. I ran Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and it doesn't find anything. I ran Hijack This and didn't spot anything myself, but that doesn't mean something isn't there. I ran microsoft's tool to find nothing and avg really hasn't found anything. Anyone have any ideas?

Here's a very quick step-by-step I use to clean infected computers for clients:
  1. Download and install CCleaner. Check all option boxes except auto complete form history, windows size/location cache, and wipe free space. Run Cleaner.
  2. Go here: Microsoft Security Essentials Offers Free Anti-Virus Protection. Download and install, then update. Cancel the auto-scan after isntallation (uncheck box).
  3. Restart Windows in safe mode, (F8) and complete a full scan.
If you follow these instructions exactly as I've given them, and you can remove nearly all malware and virus infections if treated immediately after detection.
