I am very new to this forum, and also quite new to Windows 7, so please be gentle with me.
Windows 7 Home Premium
The problem I am having is this:
When I type something into the Google search dialogue, then I hit enter, I get a list of search suggestions - as I would expect. When I click on one of these links, I am redirected to strange pages via pages like "bidsystem.com", "bidvertiser.com", "thealltimes.com", etc.
This problem only seems to be happening in my daughter's login, not my Admin login.
I have already tried running SpywareFighter v4.1.85, and this quarantined 3 files.
I may be naive, but I sort of expected McAfee Security Centre to protect me from things like this.
I think that when SpywareFighter was scanning the computer, McAfee did notify of some quarantined files, but I did not make a note of the details.
If it helps with the investigation, here are the details of McAfee Security Centre that I have installed:
McAfee Security Centre v11.0, Build 11.0.654
McAfee Virus Scan v15.0, Build 15.0.294
McAfee Personal Firewall v12.0, Build 12.0.345
McAfee Anti-Spam v12.0, Build 12.0.292
McAfee Parental Controls v13.0, Build 13.0.319
McAfee QuickClean and Shredder v11.0, Build 11.0.416
I am not sure what other information I should include, so this may do for the moment.
Any help that can be offered would be greatly appreciated.
