Search Engines Redirecting to Other Sites

April 11, 2011 at 11:27:41
Specs: Windows XP
For the last few weeks or so our computer has been redirecting to other sites when we try to click on the links on any search engine. It also redirects us when we click on links from other websites. There's a program called Avast on the computer and my mom thinks it might be a virus because when she tried restoring the computer to another date the Avast stayed on the computer. She said she looked at the Restore Files or something and it had renamed itself. If anyone could help I would be so thankful!

Avast is a Anti Virus program, not a virus.

I did a quick tutorial on a possible fix. May or may not work: http://www.spywarehelpcenter.com/th...

It has worked for others. I definitely recommend you try to get rid of it with antivirus program as well.
