          Could you please confirm the issue, Is it redirecting you to some other websites or are you getting any virus pop ups ??

              Hi bove,


              This could be a spyware redirecting your browsers,

              Try resetting the browser, Open IE click tools - click internet options and from advanced tab click Reset,(which will delete all current settings including any browser addons and your home page) .


              If problem persists, follow the below steps;

              1. Download the Stinger tool from the link below:

              2. Double-click Stinger and select Preferences.
              3. Enable the Report Applications option.
              4. Click OK.
              5. Click Scan Now and allow the scan to complete.

                NOTE: During the scan, you may receive a clean error during on certain .cab files. Ignore the error and allow the scan to complete. The files will be removed when the system is restarted.
              6. Restart your computer.
              7. Run Stinger again using the steps above.
