My alternate laptop is running Windows XP Pro Performance Edition SP3.
It is a Dell Latitude D800,
with an older Pentium processor, 1700MHZ, with only 512mb of RAM.
When using google, I get a page of search results as I usually would, but when I click on one of the results, I am redirected to another page. Some of the pages I've been sent to are reply.com, alphamalesystem, and insidetotalhealth.com.
This happens in Avant browser, Firefoc and IE. I noticed the problem yesterday afternoon. There was also a bar at the bottom of the Firefox window that said "Firefox seems to be working...very...slowly" and a button to 'speed it up'. Not sure if this is a factor. I have run Revo uninstaller to see if my child installed anything untoward, but found nothing.
I ran MalwareBytes AntiMalware several times, but the problem persists. I checked to see if my LAN had developed a new proxy (as some infections have done on previous computers in the past), but there was nothing.
I need to have this laptop running because my alternate one is due to be sold fairly soon.
I would appreciate any help that you could provide.
