In both Firefox and Internet Explorer, I get constant re-directs from search engines. In addition, when I leave browsers open, new tabs or windows will pop up taking me to random places.

Scans with Malwarebytes and Avira turn up nothing, and I've been as careful as I possibly can be about the sites I visit. Not sure why this sort of thing continually happens to my computer, but any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
