Also when I do a search from google sometimes the search goes to a different site than the one I have chosen, ending up with a off the wall search. It appears that the search has been redirected. Thank you for any help. ConfusedWell, it means that there is some malware on your computer which needs to be cleaned. To remove it you can download Super Anti Spyware from Here and Malwarebytes from Here. This combination is very effective and would remove all malwares from your system. But before you can download the anti malware software, install it and run it on your computer, you need to do this: Click on "Start" menu, followed by clicking on "Control Panel" In the "Control Panel", click on "Performance and Maintenance" Within the "Performance and Maintenance" window, click on "Administrative Tools" In the "Administrative Tools" window, click on "Computer Management" Within the "Computer Management" window, select "Device Manager" and in the "View" menu, on top, click on "Show hidden devices". On the right side of the window, scroll down to "Non-Plug and Play Drivers". In there, search for "TDSSserv.sys", right click it, and select and click on "disable" Followed which, restart your computer, download the anti malware software, as mentioned above, run them and the problem that you are facing with your search engine will no longer be there.
