I have the Google redirect problem as well. Here are some details:
My computer has been running slow and at times it just freezes for no apparent reason.
When I search Google, it displays the normal results with the normal titles, but the actual url of the site is different and I can see that there is a redirect thing going on. All the urls start with http:// 447a.r.google.com/click?q=google%20redirct&lnk=http%3A%2F%2F (I left space between http and the rest so it wouldn't turn into hyper link) and then the url form the actual site from the search results.
The redirect sites are all related to the search term, but all are what you would call sale's page. I can even see the aff id of the person whos doing this.
Sometimes when I am normally browsing, I open a new page or click on a link and all of a sudden another site pops up, whcih interestingly enough has the content blocked, and the only way to get in is to complete 1or more of their offers. I knwo a bit about CPA and affiliate marketing and this is how some CPA scammers try to make sales and leads.
Usually when the pop up window opens, the starting url shows http:// google.analytics...
Another problem is with softwares and tools I have. Without clicking on them, all of a sudden one of them pops up and asks for permission or whatever it is that it does when you are actually trying to use it, though I didn't even click on it and wasn't even using it!
I would appreciate any help. If possible, I would rather get rid of it manually (if its a file in registry that can be deleted or something like that). Thank you very much in advance.
