I have been experiencing problems with google and yahoo on all of my internet browsers - Chrome, Firefox (my primary one), and IE. For example, if I search for "jump" in google, it will return: "YouTube-Madonna Jump Video" - but actually taking me to www.toseeka.org, "Jump-NewYork City" - www.revolution health.com, "JUMP!" - www.shopasearch.com, "The JUMP Project" - www.monstermarketplace.com; and so on.
I was able to use search.com to search for help on this and saw some other people had experienced similar problems. I ran Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware in standard and safe mode. I also ran AVG in safe mode. AdAware 2008 could not pick up anything either. Upon reading about the firefox plugin "NoScripts", I downloaded and installed that. Upon enabling it, the problem is resolved. However, I would like to be able to run firefox without the add-on because it seems to severely slow down my browsing and I have viewing problems here and there with it.
Thank you very much.
