Google search redirects

Unread postby Biggie3077 » April 8th, 2009, 9:55 am

It seems when I do a search from Google and I click on the link it redirects me to a different page than what the link should be going to.
For example if I search Brooks Brothers and the first link is for hxxp://www. brooksbrothers .com and I click on it. IE shows the web address for Brooks Brothers for a few seconds then its off to some weird page. If I push the back button to Google and click on the link again it goes to the right web page. I hope that makes sense.

In that case I am unable to provide assistance, from forum rules :

In General, we do not help in cleaning business or corporate computers. There may be restrictions and modifications installed on such machines that could be damaged or altered by the actions we take to remove Malware. There may also be legal issues regarding any loss of business data that we do not wish to deal with.
If you ask for help and, unknown to us, it involves a business computer, you need to understand that any damages resulting from our advice are YOUR RESPONSIBILITY.


I recommend that you contact IT support.
