Hello,

I hope someone can assist me.

I use Google Chrome as my internet browser. Just in the last few days, when I have tried to carry out searches through the URL field (as opposed to the Google search field), the browser re-directs to www.resultsbar.com, rather than a Google results page. This brings up irrelevant search results.

I understand this is a common problem, but I cannot seem to find a published solution. It's not a critical problem in and of itself, however there is the possibility there might be a malware infection. Does anyone know what can be done to correct the situation with the Google searches?

I have already tried de-installing and re-installing Google Chrome, and this makes no difference. This is why I suspect malware of some kind may be causing this. Occasionally, as part of my work, I do have to install documents and images which are subject to a malware or disruptive content warning. However, I have not experienced this particular problem before, nor any other significant difficulties caused by malware.

I would be grateful for any input that can be provided. I am not technically qualified in the computing field, so I apologise if my information seems vague or incomplete, or if there are inaccuracies.

Regards,
Tom.
