    The last few weeks I seem to run into situations where I google or search for web information and am redirected to toseek, or monsterplace, or even ebay. I cannot return to my orginal search list. Have scanned with spybot, ad-aware, and Norton....doesn't solve the problem. Can someone give me some suggestions? Thank you !

    You may want to try cleaning out your browser as well.

    Also, if using IE, check in "Internet Options" and the setting for "Search defaults" (it should be under the "General" tab).
