Just wanted to say hello. My name is Shamis. I found this site by way of yahoo answers while searching for a solution to my browser redirecting problems. I'm going to take a minute and browse the how to guides to get familiar with the site then hopefully get my problem solved.

Thanks everyone in advanced!

Generally, browser redirects are caused by malware that has infested your hard drive. You might begin by posting about your problem in the Am I Infected? Forum. The more information you can give about where your browser is being directed TO, and whether you have scanned your hard drive with your resident Anti-Virus or what anti-spyware applications you have used, will be extremely helpful and allow our Members to provide faster help.

Thanks John,

I did that and found that my topic belonged in the Hijack thread so I'm just hanging out waiting for my thread to be next in line. Thanks again for the warm welcome and assistance.
