Sometimes when I click a link after using a search engine, I get redirected to another page which will display ads or try to install trojans. On startup, I'll occasionally get a popup on my taskbar that says my computer is at risk and that Norton is turned off (even though I use Kaspersky Anti-Virus). Also, I think my Windows Updates are not working properly, as update KB2416447 never seems to be installed.

Can anyone help? Much thanks.

Bumping this topic.

I also noticed that whenever I try to open a ".exe" file, I get an error message saying that the file is not a valid Win32 application. Any help with these issues will be appreciated!
