I have been getting redirected to a page (google) that looks like this:

Did you mean: http://fls.doublecli...66795590612.744?
Your search - http://fls.doublecli...66795590612.744? - did not match any documents

The actual message varies after "Did you mean:" and has to do with images (I think).
This started out of the blue a couple weeks ago and is happening frequently when I go to web pages. Sometimes from my favorites, or from other sites ect… I understand the message but find it odd that all of the sudden SO MANY web sites are loading with bad links. At times I can’t even click the back button and have to close IE and start over. Almost every time I do that I don’t get that message again. I have uninstalled ALL THINGS GOOGLE to no avail. Does this have something to do with why my internet has become so slow?? I have Qwest DSL and when I run speed tests they are never below 4200mbps down / 700mbps up. Can somebody give me a clue?
I've deleted cookies, cache ect from IE and have run a battery of spy/malware and am protected by AVG 8.0, updated and scaned (full system) daily.

Thanx Happy...
Downloaded hosts zip file, got it installed (checked old one, and checked new), rebooted, checked to see that new hosts file was still there, went on-line and when I tried to open geeks to go (twice) I got this msg: Your search - http://pagead2.googl...494067626122848 - did not match any documents.

Had to restart IE and stop the download as soon as I saw the login icon so I could get here. Any other sugestions??

The download I was talking about is the geeks to go web page loading. When I clicked the link you sent it brought me to this reply page.

To clean your temp folder, recycle bin, index.dat etc..please download this free tool...

CCleaner

Don't install any Toolbars, or other programs, should it ask you...Just
uncheck the option of installing the Yahoo toolbar....if you get
the slim version it does not have the toolbar
thats the one I recommend...

It will put a shortcut on your Desktop.

Click on CCleaner to start it....
Before first use...
Select Options then Advanced.
UNCHECK "Only delete files in Windows Temp folder older than 48 hours"
The rest of the standard settings are fine...

Then click "Run Cleaner"

DO NOT USE ANY OF THE OTHER TOOLS...RUNNING THEM MAY CAUSE OTHER PROBLEMS

I can go to the cc cleaner site but when I try to go to the download page I get this #%@$ google page after it starts loading:

Your search - http://pagead2.googl...458936876025707 - did not match any documents.

I have also run ATF Cleaner, Malwarebytes and Super AntiSpy. I am really Frustrated :)

I was able to download CCleaner from cnet and ran it as per your instructions. This seems to have worked :)
Thanx for all your help. I'll let you know if the problem pops up again

sounds like you may have a browser hijacker...

Please go to the malware forum Start HERE....

That will help you clean up 80 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty (and you may not be) then start a new topic in the MALWARE FORUM forum here...
if they give you the all clean and your still having problems post back here..

I've run all the scans with the exception of Outerinfo. When I try to go to the site to download all I get is a blank page. When I tried to go to their home page (www.outerinfo.com) I get a google images page and can't seem to get past that.
