Whenever I search using Google.com and I click on a site, I am redirected to something totally different and it's always a different site...

I am also getting all these annoying VIMAX ads popping up everywhere...

I have a feeling that there is a virus or something on the computer. This is bad since it's my mom's computer she uses for work and she has some important information on it. If she finds out that there is a virus of some sort on there, i'm screwed...

I'm not supposed to install things without my parents permission so if I ask to install some Malware Protector, they'll ask why and they'll find out... Shoul I tell them that I know there's malware on the computer and that something needs to be done?

I need something to get rid of this problem soon. I am willing to send it in to a place like Best Buy as long as it won't cost a lot...

If there is any good program that's free that will help, please tell me it!

The computer is running Windows Vista and is using Internet Explorer as the browser.

Try running an online scan

Please run a BitDefender Online Scan
  • Click I Agree to agree to the EULA.
  • Allow the ActiveX control to install when prompted.
  • Click Click here to scan to begin the scan.
  • Please refrain from using the computer until the scan is finished. This might take a while to run, but it is important that nothing else is running while you scan.
  • When the scan is finished, click on Click here to export the scan results.
  • Save the report to your desktop so you can post it in your next reply.

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
