Whenever I use various search engines the links are changed to different sites. I obviously have some sort of malware, but AVG and Spybot haven't found anything. Anyone have any suggestions on how to deal with this?

You could also try Lavasoft Ad-Aware. http://www.lavasoft.com/single/trialpay.php

Also try using CCleaner and be sure to run it's registry cleaner. http://www.ccleaner.com/download

AVG and Spybot are crap. So is ad-aware. I used to use all three, and they've never done me an ounce of good. I switched to Avira/Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware recently, and they seem to be significantly better.
