I am having the occasional redirect when I click on a google search result. I am not experiencing any pop-ups or homepage problems. I am running Firefox 3.5.11. The redirect probably happens twice out of say, twenty attempts. It's usually a redirect to Infomash, and at times to others. When it happens I simply use the Back arrow, click on the link again and it goes to the proper web page.
I have run Malwarebytes, Super Anti-Spyware (Free Edition) and McAfee. Malwarebytes and McAfee come back saying nothing infected. Super Anti-Spyware almost always finds a few tracking cookies from Macromedia Flash and a few others (if this is important I will run and log the specific sites). I am on a Dell Inspiron and the reinstallation dvd says I running Windows Vista Home Premium 64Bit SP1.
A disclaimer: I am fairly computer illiterate, so any help will have to be talked about in a manner which a beginner will be able to understand sry! And this may not mean anything, but I swear I have tried to download programs in the past and have been told I didn't have 64, but 32 Bit?!
Also, none of my programs will update. Should the update topic be another thread?
Thanks in advance for any help received.
EDIT: Oops, meant to introduce myself. Hi all! Newbie here!
