Remove with Effective Solution

‘I am having problems with Google redirects.  Every time I search for something and click on first site it redirects to or some other obscure site. If I go back quickly and then reclick it will go to the requested site.  I am running Norton 360 and I also occasionally run Malwarebytes. Neither have identified any problems.  After reading some forums today with the same problems I booted in safe mode and ran malewarebytes and norton and still found nothing. Please help this is very frustrating ’ – Quoted from one of the victims.
