When ever I go to Yahoo or Google and use the search engine, any link I click on redirects me to something called MorwillSearch.com, another search engine. Could someone please help me get rid of this thing?

run your spyware and virus programs and it will probably be found for removal. If not, let us know.It appears to be a porn site.

If you don't have an antivirus choose one of these. Only use one.

AVG Free Edition Antivirus(I personally use)
Avast Home Edition Antivirus Freeware

If you are running 2000, or XP I recommend,

Microsoft AntiSpyware Beta

These are a must for all computers

Spybot
AdAware SE Personal Edition
Ewido Security Suite - 14 day trial
cCleaner

These are firewalls.

Zone Alarm
Sygate 5.4

Others will suggest more but I think this is a good start.

You may have a file somewhere in your computer that is re0directing all of your search engines to that search engine. If you use a spyware search it should solve your problem.
