Search Engines Results Redirected - Adware?

When I use Google or use any other search engine, results are returned as McAfee approved sites (green arrow). However, when I click on the link or url, I am redirected to what appears to be adware. I have cleared temporary internet files, cache, cookies, history, etc. McAfee virus scan says everything is good.

Has anyone had this happen? How can I fix it?
