Ok, so after a week struggling away by myself, I have decided that advice from others is the only way forward. Around last week I contracted a, what I believe to be, 'virus'. It doesn't affect anything on my computer except Chrome. I have searched Google with both Safari and Internet explorer and each time I seem to be able to get patched through to the correct links. This 'virus' does not allow me to get through to the correct links first time when I click them in the results of my Google search. I will have to press 'back' and then try again. It doesn't happen with every link however I see no pattern with the redirecting of search results, it doesn't seem to be traffic orientated. I did run a log on Malwarebytes which resulted in showing me I wasn't infected, but I still have the problem:
