Hi guys,
I am having a mixture of problems that include:
- When I open Google in IE, Firefox or Chrome and do a search, half the links redirect me to random websites that have nothing to do with the search criteria.
- Sometimes my browser will open by itself or open a new page by itself. The page is typically the same sort as the misdirected link mentioned above.
- I have had a number of blue screens but cant remember what the message was. I'll write it down next time.
- Within 30-60 minutes of being connected to the internet, my laptop will usually produce a message saying something about on of the services and then restarts. This doesn't happen when I am offline.

I am running Vista and have downloaded regular updates. I have run numerous scans with Spybot, Trend Micro Housecall, SuperAntiSpyware, AVG, Malware Bytes with no malicious software found. On two occasions, the Malware Bytes scan seemed to cause the computer to restart.

I appreciate any help you can give me.
Kind Regards,

I ran Malware Bytes again last night and it caused the computer to restart.

I turned the laptop on this morning and was not doing anything when WinPatrol produced the following message. I chose NOT to allow this.
