As of two days ago, our family's computer has been plagued by online search results (google, etc.) being redirected to spurious web sites.
This occurs in both IE8 and Firefox.
One thing I have noticed in either browser is that if I open the link in a new tab, the new tab reaches the intended page.
I have read around a bit (I'm currently typing this post on an ancient mac) and it would seem that this type of exploit/infection comes in many variations, so I've come here, to the experts for advice as to how to proceed.
Thanks so much in advance.
