When I click on a web site my computer goes to any site. What would cause the computer to get redirected? I am running window vista on a lap top. Let me know what other information you need.

Thank you.

Hello :thumbsup:

Start with CCleaner (use the Cleaner tool)
(It is a good program, it's free, and it works with Vista):
http://www.ccleaner.com/
It not only cleans your computer, it also has a Registry tool that will check for/fix registry errors, and it also has an "uninstall programs" tool and a "startup" tool (you can remove items from Startup).
There is a tour, see what the program does, look at the screen shots.

Then get Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (also free).
