    You generally have to download a file as well as following a link to get infected with most spyware, the sort of files you can get from just following a link are more malware. A good scanner should tell you if you have any, there are a lot of free programs to choose from. eg AVG, Malwarebytes, etc.

    If you have Norton 360, try opening it in Norton Safe Search:

    If it is a link, then you don't have spyware.  Just DON'T CLICK ON IT
