As for the browser, I have both IE and Firefox; searching for anything on google and then clicking on the search results takes me to some bogus sites.

Please help me.

Most likely a virus or trojan.

Boot to safe mode with networking and update your anti-virus software and run a full deep scan.

Also look in your hosts file for any wierd entries. (C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts)
