Hello there,

I hope that someone who has more knowledge about your problem post a solution here. However, I ran a search on google about redirection problems. Many people have posted questions about this. It seems that it's related to a virus infection (page hijacking). Have you tried to scan your computer for spyware and other malware?!!

By the way, do you receive a 302 error?

If you do, please read this:

About 302 error

Good luck.

Basically, if you had pop ups, it means that you were infected. Badwares don't disappear by themselves unless you've already cleaned your PC so the two (pop ups and redirection problem) are probably connected. I think that there is another member who has the same problem as you as you. Have you read this thread?

Finally, I really would like to help but I am a novice not a technician however I hope that the more advanced members will help you. Therefore, I am posting here to move up your thread in the discussion for other members to see.

All advices and help are welcomed. Please anyone??? :thumbsup:
