Google Link Hijacking

I've been getting some weird problems with
Google lately. I click on a link and it
redirects me to another website, often ones
filled with spyware and adware. I've
run a full scan with Ad-Aware and
SuperAntiSpyware and both found quite a bit
of infected cookies and a couple of viruses. I
also have McAfee installed and it
is currently updated.

An interesting thing to note is that every once
in a while McAfee will pop up
saying Generic.dx!hkz has been found and neutralized.
They all are coming from the
Temp folder in C:/Windows/. I've deleted
everything in there except for the files
necessary to run McAfee, and even now I'm
still getting pop ups saying trojans
have been removed from Temp. I don't know
what to do because all of the virus
scans I've done seem to have had little to no
effect on the hijacking. I'm using
Google Chrome by the way.

I tried getting ComboFix, but when
I try to run it from the desktop as per
instructions I get a "Not a valid win32
program" error. I'm using a "non registered"
copy of Windows 7 build 7600
because my 30 day trial just ran out.

I have a scan log from HijackThis, but the rules state I have to have an expert request it first. Let me know if I should post it or not. Thanks.

Please use your previous post to correspond . I have made a post to it already ComboFix will not yet run on 64 bit systems.
