I'm having an issue where when I click on the result of an internet search, I am redirected to a non-related advertising type site. Also occasionally I will have the browser directed at some website and then all of the sudden a random window pops up with the same type of advertising type site as above.
It used to happen in both IE and firefox on both google and yahoo (possibly others, I only tried those 2). I have tried running Antivirus scans, malwarebytes and SAS. They found and removed a couple things, but no help. I then tried a system restore back to 2 weeks ago before I had any issues, but that also did not help. I've noticed now that it is only when I search using the integrated search area in the top right corner of IE (which is set to google). If I type in www.google.com in the address window, and then search from there, it does not redirect when I click on the results.
Thanks so much in advance!
