Why does my computer redirect me whenever I google anything and how do I fix it? I am afraid I have picked up some type of virus but not sure.

run these free tools in the exact order
1- rkill.exe (stops the process)
2- TDSS killer ( removes unwanted rootkit if found)
3- Malwarebytes (run a full scan and fix all it finds) then reboot

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers
