My guess is your DNS got poisioned by malware. Try flushing your DNS, check for a hosts entry, etc. What IP is DNS returning?

Are you not running any AV?
If Hijackthis and Ad-Aware were the only tools you ran to see if you were clean,then IMHO that is not nearly enough...
At the very least you should run MalwareBytes/SuperAntiSpware/HitmanPro for a good analysis....
All are Free DL,s,with the exception of HitmanPro(if it finds something BAD,you need to buy to remove it)...
