Google links redirecting me to other websites

Unread postby mille2mr » December 11th, 2010, 5:12 pm

Hello, I just purchased and installed Webroot antivirus after having a virus removed by Best Buy. Almost immediately after installing I went to google and did a search. When I click on links from Google, I am being redirected to completely different websites, including some MalWare sites. Webroot has offered to help me remove it myself "if I am technically savvy and have days or even weeks" or I can give them $130. Can you assist?
