Since last couple of days i am facing some problem. I search something in google. I click on any of the links of the result and rather than going on to that link i am redirected to some new link. How does my URL get modified? Is there any back door programme running in my PC? or Something between my PC and my service provider? I scanned my PC already with MacAfee but it didn't find anything like that.

Does it redirect to the same URL every time?
Does the version of McAfee installed on your computer have spyware and adware removal feature?

There seems to be a spyware taking control over the redirects of your browser. Check this url for sanity retrieval.
I agree. Here's the link:
