Hi, I'm having trouble where every few links I click from google searches redirects and some of the links have the 'windows spyware' virus.

I read some of the other threads and ran tdsskiller and it didn't find anything.

I ran malwarebytes in safe mode and it removes the 'windows spyware' virus I'm getting from the links, but it's not finding the one that causes google links to redirect.

I also think the virus I got from the links has hidden some of my files because the 'accessories' file under the windows start menu is no longer there. I also I can't use the search from the start button to type in 'cmd' or 'run', instead I get 'search failed to initialize'

Any ideas how to fix this? I'm using Vista. Thanks.
