If have noticed the last few days that when my laptop starts I get a security warning that the firewall is turned off and have to manually turn it back on.

Also, when I do a search in Google and click on one of the results, I get redirected through several different sites: doubleclick and infofeed are a couple that I've seen in the message bar at the bottom of the browser window.

I've run my anti-virus program, Trend-Micro, but when I rry to update it I get a message the an error has prevented my security software from contacting Trend Micro and that I need to make sure my internet connection works and to check my proxy settings.

I've also downloaded Ad-Aware, which I was able to install and run, and Spybot S&D, which I downloaded from cnet' Download dot com but have not been able to install because it cannot contact safer-networking dot org for a necessary intallation file. Infact, I get redirected when I try to go to safer-networking dot org.

I've gone through the first steps listed on your Malware removal guide,; downloaded and ran ATF Cleaner, System Restore and ERUNT. But when I got to the step to download the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware I keep getting an "Address Not Found" message. In fact, whenever I try to go to a site that has anything to do with spyware or malware removal I get a "Page not found" error.

I'm at my wits end here so if anyone can give me any help to resolve this problem it would be greatly appreciated.
