Hi,

I think I've picked up an infection on my computer. I am using Windows XP and FireFox browser. When I click on google search results I am redirected to a different page. However, if I copy and past the web address into the browser it takes me to the correct website.

I tried to run Spybot S&D, but it would not open. I reinstalled it, but still no luck. I have also tried to run Malwarebytes' Anti Malware and SuperAntispyware. I can install them, but they will not run.

I have tried loading Windows in safe mode to access the antispyware programs, but my computer keeps freezing and crashing before it gets to the desktop screen.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Can anyone recommend any antispyware programs that allow you to scan online? I cant run anything that is downloaded and installed on my computer.

Thanks,
