Why does Google re-direct me to other pages?

I have ran ccleaner and malware bytes and nothing funny picked up. Read somewhere about a DNS client or something? Any help much appreciated.

Check that your browser isn't using a proxy.

how do i check that?

It might be different for each browser. Are you using Firefox or what?

chrome - i should have stated that to begin with. Chrome is redirecting me when i click on a link.

Browser hijack ?

Yup that'll be my pick. ADWcleaner should do the trick.

Google wouldn't. Most likely you have a toolbar installed. technically it isn't malware, more like annoyanceware.
You can usually remove them manually, just remove it from the browser.

Check in settings/extensions. I use Chrome with Hola for watching overseas videos, mostly bbc, and it sometimes interferes with my pages. I disable it and all is good.

You dont say if it is web pages that are being redirected .
If it is then it has nothing to do with Google it is the redirect from the web page hosting so obviously a domain redirecting to an affiliate page.The first thing these "experts" on here should have said
