When I type anything to find on google, the list shows for many websites to choose from. Every time I click one, it "redirects" me to other websites, always. Why?

If I type "dogs" on google, of course many possible websites will appear for me to choose from. Every website I click on, I get sent to a page that says "redirecting" leaving me at places that have nothing to do with what I just clicked.

That can be caused by Malware on your PC, or a Rootkit infection you picked up.

Install, update, and run these programs in this order.
(Not all programs detect the same Malware.)
They are all free for personal use, but some have limited functionality in the "free mode" - but those are features you really don't need to find and remove the problem that you have.
Note: If your Malware infection is bad enough and you are mis-directed to URL's other than what is posted, you may have to use a different PC to download these programs and use a USB stick to transfer them to the afflicted PC.
