Google search problem - I get a redirect

I'll google a subject. The list of links come up. When I click on one I do not get the site I request but get 101links.info then a jump to another search link such as http://oxy.oxysearch.com/ .

I did a spybot and cleaned off all that was found.

Why am I getting this redirect and how do I get rid of it?

P.S. This happens only using firefox and I am using Windows XP

unfortunately our old friends spybot S&D and Ad Aware SE...

just don't 'get it done' anymore... there are many malware infections that will go undetected by those, and even if detected can not be removed...

you obviously have a browser redirect... what do you have running that is not obvious?... those are usually the worst problems the un-obvious ones...

you might want to download Spy Sweeper... Link...

or Spyware Doctor... Link...

both are effective programs... and see what's going on...

Did the free Spy Sweeper. After spybot did its thing there were still 40 things found, including trojan-dnschanger!

Now to find and get rid of it.

Is there a free program to do that?
