Using windows 7 64 bit.

When I search for something in google, after clicking on the results I am redirected to random ad pages. Doesn't do it for every result, only randomly.

Tried running avast and malwarebytes and can't find any infection.

Running IE 9.

Sorry, mods can delete this thread if you want. I was able to fix with a system restore. I think my son was using this computer over the weekend and must have installed some malicious stuff by accident.

It appears that this issue is resolved, therefore I am closing the topic. If that is not the case and you need or wish to continue with this topic, please send me or any Moderator a Personal Message (PM) that you would like this topic re-opened.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
