    I don't seem to get it, just awhile ago I was searching google and when I clicked a result It went to an ad page. Also spybot won't seem to run anymore? Got any suggestions?

    Hey guys I solved my own problem, it was a problem with the DNS, all I did was flush the DNS (ipconfig /flushdns
    ) and now I don't see any ads.

    Sound like you should do an anti-spuware scan using something like Super Anti Spyware, that could be an underlying infection.

    freshly installed unpatched windows gets infected within 14 minutes after you connect to the internet.

    make sure you get all the service packs and a nice firewall, antispyware and antivirus
