I'm not quite sure what type of problem I have but I suspect it some sort of malware. Recently most google searches I perform are returning "false results"

My system is

Version 5.1.2600 Service Pack 2 Build 2600
I have done a bit of reading through the forums here and I am currently trying to run the Kaspersky Online scanner, taking a while to update the database though, but after reading the intro to this forum I want to ask for advice before trying anything more advanced.
