Google Redirects and Spyware Scanner Disabled

(OP)
Hello All.

I started my computer this morning and my spyware program, SUPERAntiSpyware popped up a notification that it had to close and asked me if I wanted to send an error report to Microsoft - that was my first clue that something was up. I searched on Google and my browser tries to redirect me to ad sites but never loads the ad site page (Mozilla). I downloaded HijackThis, CWShredder, and Spybot SD after reading some of the other posts. CWShredder ran but found nothing, I was able to load, but not run Spybot and HijackThis won't install. Any help you can provide would be appreciated. Thanks

Download and run MalwareBytes

If you're unable to run/install downloaded applications and your AV won't run either, then this is serious. Hopefully, you'll be able to install and run Malwarebytes which will clean up the system.

Make sure your data and other important files are backed-up now.
