Hi, earlier tonight I noticed that whenever I type something into the google, the links show up normal but then redirect me to random advertising/popup-like sites when i click the link. I also was getting popups that I think are the Personal Security virus, which I assume is a separate problem.

I got the Antivirus Live virus earlier this week and fixed it (I think) using Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware.

I am running Malwarebytes full scan and SuperAntiSpyware scan right now in Safe Mode and they both seem to be finding problems. After these scans are complete, if I'm still being redirected on Google, WHAT DO I DO? please help. I know almost nothing about computers and step-by-step instructions would be most helpful.
Thank you!
