Hi,
Every time I use a google link I get redirected to a porn site. I ran
anti-virus and anti-spyware and it came up clean. It only happens if I use a
search engine link. So not sure why this is happening. Please advise on how
to proceed.
Thanks.

spyware for sure.  Try using another spyware scanner - hopefully one
will find it.

Not a virus but a browser hijack, possibly a Browser Helper Object (BHO).
Obviously you can't use a search engine to get information on browser
hijacking and BHOs so I'll give you a direct link.

Go here for lots of information on the above mentioned subjects:

Good luck.
