When I attempt to access a bookmarked website I am automatically taken to a different website. I right clicked to view the page info on the site I was directed to.Under referring url is the address of the bookmarked website I am trying to access.

This only happens on my home PC. I have been able to access the bookmarked site from every other PC I've used.

Hi Ahdonis and Welcome to Bleeping Computer,

Lets rule out that you don't have any nasties working havoc with your OS, as this behavior can be typical to a spyware/malware infection.
Install SUPERAntispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.

I ran Ad-Aware SE and I'm still getting redirected after quarantining 63 items.

SuperAntispyware will find items that Ad-Aware did not.
Be sure to run it in Safe Mode.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.

Welcome to BC astieber1980

If you have an issue or problem you would like to discuss, please start your own topic. Doing that will help to avoid the confusion that often occurs when trying to help two or more people in the same thread with different problems. Even if your problem is similar to the original poster's problem, the solution could be different based on the kind of hardware, software, system requirements, etc. you are using and the presence of other malware. Further, posting for assistance in someone else's topic is not considered proper forum etiquette.

Thanks for your cooperation.
