Is anyone else having issues with Google or is my computer settings off?

Everytime I click on a link on Google, I get an ad (or something that resembles spam?) I go back to the page and click the link again and the page I want comes up.

What happened?

You may have some malware or a search redirector (or both) What do you use for anti-virus?
Download and run Malwarebytes and see if it finds anything. When you run it for the first time, click decline on the popup to use the free version.

I agree with NHDave, sounds like malware.
