Everytime I open either Mozilla Firefox, or IE 8, and attempt to go to Google, it automatically redirects me to "microsoft security center". The page appears real, and wants me to download "antispyware" now. This page comes up in both Firefox and IE 8. When I put my curser over the link, the link address is www.antispy.com/index.html

I removed and downloaded both IE 8 and Firefox. Is something in my registry not right?

Thank You in advance!

I suggest that you download, update, and run...Malwarebytes (free version), http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php

You might also try a couple of these free online scanners to see if anything has slipped by your protection:
(Be advised that some of these scanners will pickup things in "quarantine" from other anti-virus programs - so review the results carefully)

FWIW: It seems that new malware...comes along daily...I would run Malwarebytes today...since you have the problem today.

I can do that, but I had the problem when I ran it last time.
