I am running internet explorer on Windows Vista Home premium. When I do a google search and click on a search result link, a new window is opened and it is often "infomash". I say often becasuse it can be other sites but I most commonly see infomash. I can close the undesired infomash window and re-click on desired google search result again and get to the proper site, but this is really slowin me down.

I have updated and run Malwarebytes AntiMalware, spybot, and microsoft security essentials but none of these result in any "infection".

I am not very savvy so forgive me if I ask some dumb questions.

Welcome aboard Posted Image

Do you have some other browser installed so we can see if it's affected as well?

Open IE, go Tools>Internet options>Advanced tab and click on "Reset" button.
Restart IE.

Same issue?
