I have two problems, both potentially from the same virus.  First of all, every time I try to click on a google link, I get redirected to a random site.  I have to click the link several times before it goes to the correct site without redirecting.
Secondly, a box keeps popping up that says "Google installer has stopped working" ... I don't know what this is, but it pops up every few minutes.

Any help is much appreciated!

    I have the same problem with google, the links in the search results go pretty much anywhere but to the actual site listed. And I went to the link above to try and fix some of my issues, and the first thing that happened after I ran hijackthis was I lost my printer, so I now have to try and get that straightened out. Getting a bit frustrated.

      I did post this, more than once, actually. I just thought this person might like to know they aren't the only one experiencing this issue.
