I'd agree that checking your running shoes would be a good place to start. Poor-fitting or worn out shoes can give you all kinds of aches and pains. If you haven't already, I'd recommend visiting a specialty running/walking store where you can be properly fitted by a professional.
Hope that helps,

3 things to start with:
- the age and fit of your shoes - poor form with squats (I daresay 99% of people don't know how to squat properly) - poor running gait

I've been doing various exercises such as running, zumba, strength training, and yoga and my knees have been hurting really badly! It's particularly noticeable when I do squats. What can I do help this pain and prevent future aggravation to my knees?
