Windows 7: Please Help - Wierd Problems with Google

Please Help - Wierd Problems with Google

1. Everytime I go to any gmail related link this page comes up: http://i43.tinypic.com/2z68jr5.png Gmail worked for me until I did a clean install of winodows 7 on my computer. As a result, I think I am missing a program/plug in that is used by gmail to operate normally. Could somebody please help me on getting gmail to work?
I have tried this on Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox.


2. Also, google in general isn't working for me since I did a clean install of windows 7. When I seach something in google, something totally random will come up which is not related to what I was searching.

I do not think I have a virus seeing as I just did a clean install of windows 7 yesterday, but I am doing a complete system scan with malwarebytes anyways.

Please help!

Super anti-spyware found 3 tracking cookies which I have now gotten rid of. Other than that, the other programs I used to scan did not pick up anything.

My problem still persists, any tips?

Just thought I would add, but when I try searching through google via the built in search bar in the top right hand side of mozilla, this window comes up:

http://i41.tinypic.com/144d0mo.png

(the link that it tells me to go to is not even valid).
