    If I do a google search, any link that shows up gets redirected to another website. The websites seem to be random, anywhere from investment stuff to anti-spyware downloads. Running my anti virus stuff and spybot and all those things, but haven't found anything yet. I'm actually unable to do a search on the problem because it won't let me view any page i've found once I click on the link.

    Couple of new things. I can click on the 'ad' portions of a google search, which are the links that come up on top, and also the links to the right, but not any of the other links which aren't labeled under 'ad'. This is happening in Firefox and Explorer. Also I tried to do a system restore which will help a lot of times with things like this, but I didn't have any restore points listed from before yesterday's date, it wouldn't even let me click back to november to look for ones.
