Internet pages get redirected to other sites

I have some kind of virus or malware. When I open up IE and go to a news website and click on a story, it then redirects me to some random site trying to sell something.

Also getting pop ups telling me I'm infected but it's not my antivirus software
I have so far: disabled startup items and non Microsoft services. I have rebooted into safe mode and run Malwarebytes and ESET online scanner. I have run a hijackthis scan. I have run ComboFix. I removed IE and Chrome and installed again

Still have the same problem. It's like something in the registry or something

Any ideas?

Use a LiveCD to scan your computer.

For ex: http://www.avira.com/en/download/product/avira-rescue-system

You system is infected with Virus/Malware/adware.

Try doing following:
1) Check firewall for unwanted opened ports and block them.
2) Disable any unwanted extensions and tool bars.
3) In safe mode (without network) run antivirus scan.

1. scan your system by live cd of antivirus or scan for viruses in safe mode by updated anti-virus
2. un-install any toolbar installed
3. remove unwanted add-ons from internet browsers
4. configure IE and any internet browser to default page.
5. use ccleaner to fix registry entries

you can also use malwarebytes for malware scan and fixes.

Try a scan with adwcleaner. It fix reg entries, webbrowser seetings and extensions, folder.

You may be infected with a root-kit virus (Zeroaccess?).  Try scanning with TDSSKiller.

Also if you have a 32 bit system, use the removal program from:
