google search redirects me to another site...how do I fix this?


That's a classic sign of a virus and or spyware.They redirect you to a site they control and try to get you to buy their virus protection.Reboot in "safe mode" and run your virus and spyware software.Make sure it's the deep scan so it clears your Restore files too.Also check your User Accounts for a "new" administrator.The virus will log on as administrator and control your computer so you can't delete the virus files.Let me know if this helps?
