All of a sudden my browser now redirects any time I do a search and click on one of the resultant links. It occurred after clicking on a request from LinkedIn. I figured there might be a problem when it opened up a Java 6 pop-up window. I tried to stop it, but could not. I consider myself fairly computer lierate, having worked in a computer lab in college, but that was some time ago. Anyway, browser redirects.
Tried Adaware, Windows Defender, CCleaner. CCleaner worked for a minute, but obviously did not kill it since it came back. Can someone help me get rid of this?
