When i use Google search and i click on a search result website i get a redirect to another website such as http://tornadodevelopment.com/search.php which leads to http://www.informationgetter.com/search-results.aspx?keywords=soap+dispensers, not the address Google shows.

An example is Google search shows www.soapdispenser.com and when i click on it i am redirected to http://aiyaaa.com/default.pk?tsearch=soap+dispensers&search_button.x=0&search_button.y=0 and immediately to http://www.infomash.org/100/7139/search.php?k=soap%20dispensers&sid=2b4fd1863238803c335ca201f8027928, not the site listed.

Some times the hijack site prevents the back button from working.
 To get around it i have to copy and paste the Google search result in the address bar and hit enter and i connect to the legitimate site.

I have ESET smart security and scan often without result.
