Google Redirected to Bogus Microsoft Security Center
When I type www.google.com or www.yahoo.com in my browser the URL is diverted to a bogus security center, "Microsoft Security Center" stating, “Alert : Your computer have been attacked by spyware or viruses! Please download AntiSpyware to fix.” This site is obviously bogus as the English is not grammatically correct. And I have NOT clicked the hyperlink found on that site.
I am able to overcome this problem with Yahoo as the Yahoo Toolbar on my browser works just fine. Unfortunately, I never installed the Google Toolbar on my browsers. When I try to use the Google Search in the top right of my browser I am taken to an error page that looks to be in a Chinese language.
This problem occurs in Mozilla Firefox/3.0.4, Internet Explorer 7.0.6001, and msn Explorer
9.6. I am running Windows Vista Home Premium, Service Pack 1, 32-bit.
Does anybody know what I can do to eliminate this problem? You folks are awesome!

This problem was corrected by Microsoft's critical update to IE 7.0 on 12/17/2008. At this time all problems listed above have been corrected in a totally satisfactory manner.
