Hello! I hope I'm posting this in the right forum. I see similar topics and thought this was the most appropriate place.
I'm currently using Firefox as my main browser. However, when I do any google searches and open new tabs in Chrome/Firefox/IE I keep getting redirected to ads that aren't the websites I clicked on. The problem occurs more frequently when I open a new tab using right click, but also occurs when I just click on the link without opening a new tab or window. Sometimes, a new window or tab will pop up to an ad when I haven't clicked on anything. The redirect isn't limited to google searches but when I click on links from blogs or articles I read/facebook/tumblr, they redirect me as well.
This has been happening for about a week now. In the beginning, it wasn't that bad and I thought maybe it was just a small glitch. But now almost after several clicks, I get ads and can never get to the actual website I want to. When I try to click back to the original page, I keep getting the ad page and can't get back to the google search results or the website I was on.
Originally, I was using Chrome but then I kept getting this message of "a weak signature algorithm" when trying access gmail and other websites I used to be able to use without any problems. So I switched to Firefox (which can access gmail and other websites just fine) but noticed how the redirects kept happening more and more frequently. Not sure if this is related to the redirect problem, but I just noticed it more after getting the weak signature algorithm message from Chrome. (I get the weak signature algorithm message only on my computer. My parents' and sister's computer can access gmail on chrome just fine. The problem also still occurs when I go to the public library and use the wifi there.)
I ran SuperAntiSpyware and it seemed to help for a little bit but the problem occurred an hour or two later.
I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium. Also, I just included some ad examples that I get redirected to on all three browsers. All of these examples occurred after I right clicked to open a new tab from a google search.
(This just brought me back to google even though I clicked on an outgoing link.)
Sorry that was a lot, but I just wanted to be thorough as possible. Thank you for any future help.
