I am using Windows XP SP3 and I have encountered several issues: google redirect, svchost.exe taking up my entire CPU.

I downloaded Malwarebytes, and it updates fine; however, when I try running it, the program crashes upon seconds. When I try to re-run, it says that the path is invalid, etc.

I tried renaming the executable, to no avail. If anyone could help me, I would greatly appreciate it.

Can you try running it via Safe Mode with Networking? You can get there via hitting F8 after the BIOS post screen.
