Also try a Hitman scan: Home - SurfRight It's possible that it is a rootkit so do a scan with Hitman as it has a high detection rate in Rootkits etc ...

Okay whatever it is, assuming it is not a toolbar installation gone horribly wrong.
We've given him more than enough tools at this point.

Perhaps we are looking at this the wrong way.
Have you tried another web browser.
If it's a real hijack it will generally affect all of them.
Otherwise I'm thinking it might be time to start looking at internet explorer itself.
Exactly what is the nature of this redirect?
Is it just changing the homepage?
Or are we even possibly just talking about the default search engine being messed up.

You are correct Maguscreed that is why I asked what browser is being used. Just giving us Google is not much to work with.

Update and More Info

Hello! Thanks for all of the replies! Here are the questions you asked and the answers for them:
Q: Have you tried another web browser?
A: Yes they all redirect.
Q: Exactly what is the nature of this redirect?
A: After searching for something, any link google has redirects. So when you click on one it redirects to a different web page besides the link you going to visit.
Q: Is it just changing the homepage?
A: No, it redirects the search result links.
Q: Are we even possibly just talking about the default search engine being messed up?
A: No, the search.
Thanks Again!!

sounds like you need tdsskiller from kapersky.

How to remove malware belonging to the family Rootkit.Win32.TDSS (aka Tidserv, TDSServ, Alureon)?

If that doesn't work we'll need to look at the url association, a registry key, and the host file.

So we all are not running around like a bunch of chickens with their heads cut off could give us a list of everything you have tried to remove this problem?
It would also be helpful if you filled in your specs completely.
