    Now it is starting to spread when I use bing. The problem is when I get search results and click on them or right click, the screen will go blank for a few seconds and I will just be redirected to sites about health. I have been redirected to sites about medication, depression, and other weird sites I don't remember. If I press back I will go back not to my search results but back to google/bing main page. I need some help here thanks

    Take your time. I know it must be busy during the holiday season. I know there are other people ahead of me so don't take it personal. I do appreciate it that you responding back. I thought I was talking to myself here, lol. thanks

    Hello and Welcome to Techspot,

    I am going to ask you a few questions I would like you to please answer.

    • Are you getting re-directed when you type in google.com?
    • When you use google and search something, do you get re-directed?
    • If so, how often (for ever 4 websites, how many get re-directed)?
    • Is it using certain search engines like yahoo, google, etc.?
    • Do some search engines work and others get re-directed?
