I've been using Piriform's CCleaner for quite some time and it was time for an update.  Clicked on the wrong link and downloaded something that isn't allowing me to run Malwarebytes or SUPERAntiSpyware.  I realized the mistake when i looked at the CCleaner version number, so I went to redownload the CCleaner update and saw I the wrong link I clicked. 
Wrong link is located:
I went to Filehippo.com to download the update, on the right hand side of the page there is blue "Download CCleaner", this is the culprit.  the page it took me to is: 
and the file it had me download was:
From: hxxp://download.dl-hosting.com
As I said, I tried to run Malwarebytes and SUPERAntispyware and my computer gives me a message that says:
Missing Shortcut
searching for mbam.exe
than another window pops up and says:
Problem with Shortcut
The drive or network connection that the shorcut 'Malwarebytes' AntiMalware.lnk' refers to is unavailable.  Make sure that the disk is properly inserted or the network resource is available, and then try again.
this happens the same for both Malwarebytes and SUPERAntispyware.  The only think I have done since the download was redownload the new CCleaner (the real one) and try to run the above mentioned mal and spyware programs only to have them fail.
My opertating system is:
Windows XP
Version 2002
Service Pack 3
Thanks in advance for the help.
