Hi, This is my first time post here but I have been looking on this site for solutions for years :)

OK, to the problem. A couple weeks ago, whenever I google something and click on a page, instead of my page of choice appearing, I am redirected to pages like tazinga.com. I have to go back and click again about 5 times before I can get to the page I want. At this time I had just downloaded google chrome and thought that was the problem. I uninstalled it and nothing changed (I am back to using google chrome) I then got a virus claiming it was "Vista Home security 2011" and I needed to download it because it would help take away the viruses. I was able to get rid of that one using Super Anti-spyware (Free Edition). I thought my problems were solved until the next time I tried googling. My computer runs Vista and I have run full system scan on both Super Anti-Spyware and on Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware. Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you in advance

Hello Happy_face139,

I didn't realize last night that someone else had posted in your topic.

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<==. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include a description of your computer issues and what you have done to resolve them.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.
