This did not help. I have tried everything I can think of. It is not doing it on my imac, only the Macbook Air. I have even went so far as to reload Lion on it. It is still doing it and maybe even worse. I dont care if I loose all my info on this Laptop I just want it clean. What are my options???

FYI, now there is this box about 3 inches by 2 inches that will rise up from the bottom of the webpage every so ofter with a link to click on. Like say I look up NBA scores, it will rise up and suggest a link for somewhere to buy jersey or something.....Crazy. No other computer or mac in this house is doing this.....

You seem to have at least a partial installation of "Avast." Although I doubt that it's causing this problem, you should still remove it according to the developer's instructions, after backing up all data. You may have to reinstall it in order to get rid of it. Test after removing Avast and rebooting.

There are so many. theclickcheck.com that is from espn.com
plus on almost every site I go to there is like a box that pops up on the bottom half of the page suggesting another webpage i.e. if I go to redmondpie.com it will pop up and recomend a site called wonderwhat.biz
I think I am at the point of needing to wipe it clean and basically start over. I have already tried to reload Lion. That didnt work. How do I go about erasing everything and reloading it back up?

If you erase and restore everything the way it is now, you'll have the same problem. However, if you want to erase the boot volume, you can do that by booting into Recovery (command-R at startup) and launching Disk Utility. After erasing the volume, reinstall OS X. You may need your AppleID and password to do that.

It may be that something has hijacked your hosts file and is redirecting your browser. To check, paste this in Terminal:
cat /etc/hosts | open -f
then press 'return' on your keyboard.
