Hello there, I'm new- so if I mess anything up, please tell me!

Note: the link to my previous unanswered post is http://malwareremoval.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=43303. The log I have here is a newer version than the previously posted.

Almost every time I Google search for something, I click on the link it provides me with and I get redirected to an advertisement. The only surefire way I'll get the page I'm looking for is to click on the provided 'Cached results' link. I've scoured the web for solutions, downloaded AVG, Malwarebytes, and Avast, but the scans keep coming up with nothing. It's driving me a little crazy. Please help! Here's my log:
