When searching Google using Firefox browser my search results are not consistent with normal results. Logged out of Google of course. Example: I search something like ccleaner or firefox and there is not a result linking to them at all. But the links that do show up seem to be related just not the obvious top hits. Search Bing and the first result should be bing.com , right?

hello, google is also tracking your search history when you're not signed in - maybe you'll have to opt-out or clear all cookies from google.com & see if the results change...

Do a malware check with some malware scanning programs on the Windows computer.
You need to scan with all programs because each program detects different malware.
Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of their databases before doing a scan.

You can also do a check for a rootkit infection with TDSSKiller.
