Thanks for your help! To answer your questions ... I am not always directed to the same page. Since running Rkill it seems to have stopped, although I'm sure it was not removed, just stopped whatever process was causing it. The sites I was directed to are these bogus search engine wanna-be sites that have a bunch of links loosely related to what you are searching for.
Is that sctty the dog down there? Beats me what his name is. It's the Microsoft search dog. That's all I know. Normally he puts on glasses when you start a search.
I have a desktop with Internet access.
I downloaded and ran Rkill per your instructions. I already had Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware installed, but uninstalled and reinstalled as per your instructions, renaming the file to zztoy.exe. No dice. It will install but will not run. So now what's the procedure?
