Dear BC experts,
I need your help with fixing a problem with google searches.
When I enter keywords in the search toolbar at the top of the firefox window, the results flash for an instant and then I get redirected to the google home screen. I tried searches with other search engines (bing and yahoo) and they work fine. The problem also happens when I do searches from the google advanced search screen, but works fine from google scholar advanced search.
I ran a full scan with Microsoft Security Essentials and Spybot search and destroy, there were no viruses detected and I immunized everything that Spybot flagged as suspicious. The google search continues to redirect.
I have Windows 7 Professional, Service Pack 1, Firefox 8. Please let me know if I should provide more information.
I will greatly appreciate any help, because I have become very dependent on advanced google searches and it is very frustrating having to go around google.
Very kind regards
