Description Running Windows 7
I've been chasing this thing through my computer for months and finally, I've decided to get some help from a group of people who know far more than I do about these sorts of things xD; A few months ago, I realized that every time I searched something in Google, the first thing I would click on would lead me to a generic ad site. At first, I thought it was an issue on Google's side, and asked my friends if they were experiencing it. However, much to my concern, they were not. I assumed it was a simple malware issue and used the program Malwarebytes which had never failed me in the past, to scan and delete it. It deleted a few tracking cookies and I assumed that was the end of it.

A few days later, the problem came back. I no longer have the program I used on it on my computer, but I do believe it was Spyware doctor. It found a few more tracking cookies and the problem disappeared for a little bit more. Of course, it came back again but I chose to ignore it for the next few weeks because I'd had no luck with it so far and would just take care of it later.

About a month after that, I finally looked into the problem again and discovered people were using a program called Hitman Pro to get rid of it. Apparently, it had worked wonders. I downloaded the 30 day trial myself and once again, the problem vanished again...only to return once more a few days later.

I am at my wits end now. I've deleted all internet history, cleared everything in my temp folder and even used a trial of Revo Uninstall to search for whatever my anti-malware programs apparently weren't finding in my folders. The problem appears on the first link I click on during a Google search, no matter what the link. However, if I click the back button, it returns me to the search page and the links are cleaned.

Here is the HijackThis log:
