Thanks NHDave!!!
Amazing...Malwarebytes did it. Over the past three months, I've tried at least 10 different antivirus programs and not one of them was able to find and rid my computer of the the viruses/malware re-directing problem. Malwarebytes cleaned it up after the full scan.

Each hit header looks like it has phrases in it that relates to my search, but when I click it, all I get is a junk portal that is useless and seemingly un-navigable.

Same junk result, whether Im using IExplorer or Firefox.

Do I have a virus that is intercepting google and redircting me, or what?

Working fine for me...

If you guys would quit surfing porn sites and keep your systems fully patched and up to date, you wouldn't have these problems.

I heartily recommend Spyware Info Forum for figuring out what problems you have, and ridding yourself of nasties like web hijackers and so on. They helped me get rid of a couple of infections, one of which came in as part of a game I bought in a store in a mall.

I ran malwarebytes, and it found one infection, but quarantining it did not change anything that I can see. By the way, I got a an alert notice from my security system the other day while I was typing a response on this forum, with no other pages open.
