Searched the broblem(on my ipod)and found this site, realized it's a fairly common problem. I keep getting redirected to Yellow Pages ads, along with bookmark ads and a few others. I recently tried using Google Chrome and the problems seemed to begin then, but my computer has been running fairly slow for quite a while so it's hard pin it on that alone, and the unit was purchased in 06'. I use AVG Free Antivirus protection. Oh, I did try a couple of system restores, as well as going back to using Internet Explorer, but no improvement. There was a different kind of rectangular window notification that came up during the latest system restore which I didn't recognize, looked almost bogus.Any help would be really appreciated. I don't know my way around computers very well so your patience will be also appreciated as even some of the simplest requests you may have might go way over my head. Thanx.

Hi CompuConkedCanada,

Start with Malwarebytes http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/how-to-use-malwarebytes-anti-malware-tutorial
You can always transfer it from one computer to another with a flash drive if needed.
