  1. I am using Internet Explorer, when I enter a search on google it displays the results; in some occasions I have been redirected to other sites that have nothing to do with what I’m searching for. The only protection I have is Kaspersky Anti-Virus but it has not been able to fix the problem. I have read the 15 instructions that have been provided and I have attached the txt files that have been asked for. Also, the result for the AVG Antirootkit scan was clean, nothing was found.

    Thanks for any help.

    Try clearing your browser. You might want to use Ccleaner.

    Ive tried it, so far so good. But I think it might of been the fifteen steps in http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic58138.html link that did it. Is this a problem I should be concerned about? Also, should I keep the Spybot & AVG Anti-spyware running on my computer from now on.

    Thanks for your help

    It would be advisable. And download a free antivirus program, but don't run all these programs at the same time, as they could conflict with each other and slow system down.

    If you notice your system slow at start up, then go start/run and type in "msconfig" and select start up tab.

    You may want to download this avast! 4 Home Edition, which is free.

    If I already have Kaspersky Anti-Virus do you recomend to download the free anti-virus. If not should I leave Kaspersky Anti-Virus & AVG Anti-Spyware running together. Or just one of those programs.

    If you have Kaspersky then keep that as it is a good anti-virus program.

    No! Just use AVG Antispyware daily. I would advise to get either Zone Alarm from here
    or Comodo from here.

    Then keep one of them firewalls running and they will block any security risks.
    Also run your kaspersky Antivirus on a daily basis.
