I am running IE8 on windows xp professional. I believe I have a virus....when I put in a topic to search in any search engine sometimes it is ok, but other times it gives me a correct results, but when I click on the link it takes me to another search engine...for example I just typed disneyland in google and the disneyland link shows up, but when I click it the url changed to ...http://realrecreation.net/search.php?s=1&q=S8kszkutzEnMS-E04EwyyDPNMk_KyDVJMS61yLVMTTYvNikqysk15zQz0bMw0zM01zM1AwA~&pe=0 and then takes me to http://mega-results.com/?q=disneyland ( i hope this makes sense).
My daughter uses you tube a lot to post her films that she creates, but nowadays she is unable to log in to the site. She goes to youtube.com and the page shows up, but when she clicks on sign in link it goes to a page that says:
Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage
