    Folks,

    I'm hoping you can help me here.

    As of a few days ago, whenever I use Firefox and search in Google and click the results I'm redirected to some random site. For example, I search on Mitsubishi and click on a Mitsubishi result and get redirected to Nationwide Insurance. This usually goes for 1-3 times after which I can then click on a Google result and go direct to it.

    Additionally, my AVG protection doesn't seem to recognize the internet anymore. I pulled the latest version and when it tries to update it can't find my Internet connection.

    I've installed and run Hijack This and my log is attached.

    I would appreciate any suggestions

    Thanks
