Malware Infection?

Recommended Posts

I ran Malwarebytes, and removed several threats that had hijacked my browser and part of my system. The major problems have vanished. Now my only issues is I am being taken to incorrect/misc sites, especially when I am clicking on links provided by my Google search engine. If the Google search results indicated for example Ebay.com link, and I click on it, I'm being redirected to sites like addresses.com, and misc. spyware download sites, etc. Almost always someplace new or different, luckily never obscene. I am on a Dell Laptop, Microsoft Vista, Mozilla Firefox browser with a few add-ons, Norton's Antivirus. Below is my Hijackthis log. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
