For the past several days whenever I would use google, yahoo, or bing, my search results are redirected through a website called "searchingandclick44.com" and the original search terms are then plugged into several other websites.
I'm not completely sure that this is connected to it, but at the same time this started happening I became unable to use Gmail, as my browser (Both IE and Firefox) started saying "There is a problem with this website's security certificate." The same thing would happen when I used other websites that required the use of Gmail, such as signing into Youtube.
Occasionally when using the search toolbar to the right of my address bar with google, it will state that the 302 has moved and will give me a link.

I have tried to use MalwareBytes, but it will not pick up the problem, even after updating the program.
I tried to use gmer to see if I could find anything, but that didn't work either, because whenever I open it, it says, "C:\Windows\system32\config\system: The system cannot find the file specified." And the only things that can be checked afterwards are Services, Registry, Files, and ADS.

I use Windows 7, IE 8, and Firefox 3.5.11

I'd like to thank you in advance, and I look forward to you're help.
