I think I have the 'redirect virus'? Each time I browse/search using Google I'm costantly redirected to unwanted sites time and time again. Please help.
Thank you, in advance, for your time.

Hello michellemd51 and welcome to BC :flowers:

Please let us know what your operating system is: Windows XP, Vista, RedHat etc. so we can provide you with the proper cleaning instructions.

What security programs do you have installed?

Have you run any scans with them?

If so, what did they find?

Please describe (do not post active links) the kinds of sites you are redirected to. This will help us identify what you are infected with.
