You have "redirect" virus. Go here for directions on how to remove it: http://www.anvisoft.com/wiki/how-to...

Here is a cut-n-paste of a reply from someone else infected:

Where Happili.com attempts to evade its removal and terminates or disallows true antispyware downloading, the problem is usually resolved when you run your OS in safe mode. To start Safe Mode session, please restart your computer and before Windows starts loading press F8 and hold it until you enter Windows Advanced Options Menu; by using your keyboard choose the following option: Safe Mode with Networking, and let Windows start in Safe Mode. Try to download the antispyware of your choice again. If Happili.com still blocks remover download – act as follows:

Step 1: click Start at the left bottom corner of your monitor

Step 2: choose Run in its menu

Step 3: type “command” in the line and click OK or press Enter

Step 4: in the window that is to appear type “notepad”

Step 5: once notepad is open, insert the following text into Notepad by copy and paste:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\.exe\shell\open\command]

[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\secfile\shell\open\command]

[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.exe\shell\open\command]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.exe]

@=”exefile”

“Content Type”=”application/x-msdownload”

[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\secfile]

Step 6: save the resulted file as “exefix.reg” (no quotes) at the Desktop. When saving, please choose All Files at the “Save As” drop-down list. Open “exefix.reg” file (on your Desktop) and press “Yes”. After that you can download Spyware Doctor and other legitimate anti-spyware applications or remove Happili.com files and registry entries manually.

a redirect is usually caused by an unwanted rootkit.
Run these 3 free progs in EXACTLY the order listed and do NOT reboot until after the malwarebytes scan
1- rkill.exe
2- tdss killer
3- malwarebytes

If this doesn't fix it, then try the same process in safe mode.
