OS Windows XP Media Center SP3

When I am using my browser (FireFox 3.6.6) I see that I am often being redirected by Google Analytics.
I have recently had a problem with it being slow and I was being directed to all sorts of websites from various searches in Google.
I deemed that I had a trojan passing me to rogue sites.
I was using Mcafee 2009 Internet Security from November 2009.
I have a paid subscription to Mcafee.
I have done many full scans and it has never shown anything.
I tried to download Mcafee 2010 Internet Security which kept telling me the page did not exist so I also concluded that I had virus blocking access to anti virus.
I tried downloading Super Antispyware which worked but then wouldn't allow updates.
I tried downloading MalwareBytes (v1.46) and was able to download but again failed to update.
I ran MalwareBytes and it cleared (embarrassingly) over 400 issues mainly VideoEggs...
I was then able to download updates to both Mawarebyte and Super Antyispyware and the new 2010 version of Mcafee.
However since then I now keep getting my current tab in Firefox hangs when I use hyperlinks to redirect .
I get the message transferring data from www.google-analytics.com.
The URL is:- http://www.linkedin.com/wvmp?showMore=&...stats_viewed_by
Other tabs and FF continue working but I have to abandon the tab I was using.
I tried opening the redirect in another tab which at least leaves the original tab working.
The newly opened tab just hangs.

I have completed a full scan with MalwareBytes in both normal and safe mode.
Also Mcafee in Normal mode.
Neither show any problems.
I have looked around the web to try and find solutions but could not find any straightforward process to follow.

I will wait for advice and not post any unnecessary logs that will complicate the issue.

Apologies I saved this in the wrong Forum!!

Kind Regards

Hi Louis,

No it isn't.
Apologies this is on my own desktop.
The previous post was on my daughter's laptop.
That thread can be closed.
