I've seen several references to this problem and it appears to require a custom fix for each machine.

When I click on links from a search engine, I'm redirected to a different page than listed in the link. It happens for google, bing, and yahoo using Firefox and IE. It doesn't happen with Chrome.

I've performed scans and fixed issues using Malware Bytes, spybot search and destroy, and McAfee, but the problem persists.

Thank you for any help you can provide.

Matt

I ran a scan by tdsskiller, which seems to have fixed the problem. No further action is needed at this time.
