'links dont take me to a different site'
then you say
'when i click on a google link i am redirected to a different site'
Does that sound confusing to you? It does to me.

Anyways, You may want to try Malwarebytes, update it and run a quick scan and remove all it finds. See if that helps

in that case, use another PC and download the progs to a thumb drive or a cd and then load them onto the problem PC and run them

done that and it removed some stuff. using nod32 free trial anti virus, and it keeps blocking ip address 91.212.226.130:80 whenever i click a link. the computer now takes me to the correct link but i there is still something there causing a problem.

'using nod32 free trial anti virus'

if you didn't purchase that I would suggest uninstalling it; also if you had McAfee or Norton installed, I would suggest that you go their websites and use those uninstallers. Just add/remove will NOT remove all the registry entries so no other AV will work properly.

Then I woud suggest installing avast free and then getting it to do a bootscan on reboot and moving all it finds to the chest.
That will probably clear up your problem for you.

You can also uninstall trojan remover and hitman pro if they are coming up clean.
