Google search links redirected to different URLs

  1. When I click on a link generated from a google search, I am redirected to different URLs.

    I have performed the UPDATED 8-step Viruses/Spyware/Malware Preliminary Removal Instructions.

    I had 2 problems.

    1. I could not get the updates for Malwarebytes. I got the following message:
    "Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware has encountered a problem and
    needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience."
    I ran the program without the updates.

    2. I could not get the updates for SUPERANTISPYWARE. I got the following message:
    "There was an error trying to retrieve definitions. Make sure your
    firewall is not blocking SUPERANTISPYWARE.EXE from accessing the
    Internet."
    I ran the program without the updates.

    I have my Windows XP firewall and my Norton security turned off. I have never
    had any difficulty getting updates for any software. Could the malware be
    blocking the updates?


    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you,
    Erich
