I am using a Toshiba Portege laptop with Windows Vista on it and IE8. Many times when I click on a result in google it redirects the browser to some junk page. I have tried one or two things suggested from a google search (such as deleting additional entries in the 'hosts' file - although there weren't any), but the problem is still happening. If I use the back button about three times it eventually stays on the page I am trying to get to. I have AVG installed but it didn't seem to find the hijacker.
I am also getting occasional 'blue screen' shutdowns of my laptop - I don't know if these are related.
Any advice gratefully received.
