Hi There

Hope you can help.

What seemingly appeared to be me being a dullard, thinking that I was clicking on the wrong result in Google, now leads me to beleive I have a pesky redirect issue.

So, when I open up either IE, or Firefox, and do a search in Google, the results come up fine but when you click on a search result, a page comes up saying "redirecting in 5 seconds" and then takes me to some other odd looking search engine or webpages that offer alternatives to what I was looking for. Oddly it does not happen all the time. If I close the browser and restart it, it seems ok for while.

I am guessing my browser has been hijacked... so if anyone can provide me assistance on how to remove the problem, I would be very grateful.
