Try running either/both Ad-Aware 2008 Free and Spybot - Search & Destroy. You may have some malware in there that's redirecting you.

1. Make sure when you run anti-spyware programs (and the ones listed above really are recommended) you are in safe mode
2. Make sure it is, in fact, google you are using and not a different url
3. When you are getting redirected, see what site (in the lower left corner of your browser) is redirecting you. That will help discern what the problem is
4. Look at your running processes for any funky looking ones and then safe-mode google what it is

5. Make sure your anti-spyware and anti-virus programs are up to date.

Disable it. Do a windows search for it and delete it and any associated files.

Yikes. Try giving Malwarebytes a shot. It's free to use.
