    Hello,

    Having a problem and looking to pick some brains.

    Problem:

    1) When I open up my browser...it goes directly to my home page
    (yahoo). That is fine.

    2) If I type a topic in the search field (example: ESPN)...all the pages
    for ESPN come up (still fine).

    3) When I click on (1) of the pages (for example ESPN's home page)...it
    takes me to ads or other search engines.

    In this case, I am unable to get to ESPN's pages no matter what I try.
    It keeps re-routing me to pages with ads or other misc. search engines.

    I ran AVAST and did find one virus but still am having the problem.

    Any assistance/advise would be appreciate...

    Thanks

    Mark
