That messgae was just in the Win7 action center. there was no problem/error msg or yellow sign hardware problem.
it seems the problem solved itslef (maybe finally Norton 360 pushed an updated (finally!!!) and all of a sudden my User Profile service was corrupted and couldn't log in. (maybe the NTuser.dat or something got quarantined ?) So I logged in as my admin and transfered all my data from the old corrupted user to a new user. I left the Appdata folder intact. Now on this new username the google searches don't get redirected.
Did Norton360 get actually updated to fix this problem or was this whole user profile corruption something else? Am I safe from this pesky thing in the future?

It could be there was a Windows Update also.
Download Malwarebytes Free and have it update the definitions, then run a Full Scan.
