Windows 7: google.co.id/ redirect

google.co.id/ redirect

I have a redirect i cannot get rid of . I set firefox's homepage to google.com and it DOES open to that. However, if i hit the homepage button on my navigation bar once FF is open, instead of going to google.com it goes to a spam site that has google in the name but .co.id instead of .com. I can't paste the whole address here because it shows as a link in the post.

I have tried malwarebytes and removed it from my cookies and disallowed it in cookies. I have looked for it in the registry, in control panel, program files. many other things. I cannot find any trace of it. Any ideas how i can get rid of this garbage?
