Well other than my Found new hardware problem, a new problem has arose. Everytime i search google or any search engine and when i click the link of the website i want to go to, it directs me to an ad website that has nothing to do with it. I'm thinking it's spyware, so i'm running a scan now. I have a program called Spybot S&D but it seems to not work anymore.

EDIT: It's only some websites i search (i search valve for valvesoftware.com and when i click the link it brings me to another website) If i search for xbox it will bring me straight to xbox.com.

Yes that definitely sounds like spyware. There are plenty of alternative anti-spyware programs out there (watch out for impostors though!). I would recommend Malwarebytes.
If it is in fact spyware/malware, you'd probably be better off posting in the antivirus/security section of TSF.
