I did a system restore and that seemed to fix it. Though after doing system restore, a few days later the google redirecting began. Last week I tried to uninstall firefox then install it again and that seemed to work until it started redirecting me again. Then again I wasn't using google search as much within that span of a week compared to the previous weeks. Although my problem is on using google search, I don't use yahoo search so I'm not sure if it affects that as well. But it has happened in both Firefox and IE.
I should also point out, on an seemingly entirely different matter, that I noticed my laptop sending emails to other people. I only noticed it now because yahoo sent a 'message failed to send' email back so I'm not sure how long this has been going on. It happened several months ago but I thought I solved it by changing my email password.
Can someone please help me remove this problem and tell me how to prevent it from happening again? I would greatly appreciate it.
