Good Morning,

First my current problem then I'll give some background below, currently I am being redirected to websites similar to my searches but not the correct sites. I can copy-paste web sites and that works. Also, my background options under Desktop are greyed out.

Background: Over the past few weeks my computers has had several issues, starting with boxes telling me I had "netsky", to generic warning boxes stating .exe files i would attempt to open were infected, to a green desktop with a red/black warning then to being stuck in "restore active desktop" with no "web" tab under "customize desktop", and tons of these fake warnings. I am by no means a computer expert, but I've downloaded several malware programs and cured some of the issues. I've deleted all restore points and I've run Spybot, Malwarebytes, and regularly use AVG Anti-Virus network addition.

Thanks in advance!
