This is a link to spybot search and destroy which should help you clear that up. Even if it does clear it tho you still probably want a professional to get their hands on it and do a more extensive cleaning.

Purchase a hard copy of Disk Warrior at a local software retailer. Install and allow it to run complete scan and repair.

    I kind of thought it may be a problem to download a fix, due to all your virus woes... I still strongly recommend a hard copy CD or DVD to get you patched up.

As an Internet marketing strategy, SEO considers how search engines work, what people search for, the actual search terms or keywords typed into search engines and which search engines are preferred by their targeted audience. Optimizing a website may involve editing its content, HTML and associated coding to both increase its relevance to specific keywords and to remove barriers to the indexing activities of search engines. Promoting a site to increase the number of backlinks, or inbound links, is another SEO tactic. As of May 2015, mobile search has finally surpassed desktop search,[2] Google is developing and pushing mobile search as the future in all of its products and many brands are beginning to take a different approach on their internet strategies

How to remove google history?


Internet privacy is a growing concern for most users. Major Web browsers, websites and operating systems all implement policies and functions to let you take control of your private information. Google search keeps track of the searches you perform using Google main page. If you have a Google ID, this search history follows you from one computer or device to another. Google also includes a function to clear your search history whenever you want. Open your preferred Web browser and go to Google's website. Sign in if necessary. Click your name in the top right corner. Click the "Privacy" option in the menu that appears. Scroll down to the bottom of the page. Click the "Sign into Dashboard" button. Enter you password when prompted. Scroll down to the "Web History" section. Click the "Remove items or clear Web History" link. Click the "Remove all Web History" button. Confirm that you want to delete you Web History. Hope this helps.

I do not want to use google custom search but it always appear; I want the www.google.com website


This small trick will show you how to remove the Google Custom Search page and get the old Google webpage for queries.

  1. Click here
  2. The link will redirect you to the Google Advanced Search Settings page.
  3. Change the default keyword with the one you are looking for.
  4. At the end of the page click the Search button.

If this trick doesn't work try these other suggestions:

  • If you are logged in Google try to log out and make a new search.
  • Try to clear your Browser cache. On your browser, go to Settings, Privacy and clear your cache. Try with a new Search.
  • Go to http://www.google.com/cse/manage/all?hl=en, log in and delete or turn off Google Custom Search engines.
  • Do you have toolbars installed on your browser? Delete them, restart your computer and try to make a new search.
  • Scan your computer for viruses. Sometimes, malicious viruses install Google custom search engines on your browser to make you click on their ads.

I Googled Golding Young Auctioneers yesterday, the site that came up was Teen porn! I thought there was a mistake so I tried the next one, that was also a porn site as was the third site, the fourth site...


I just Googled the exact same phrase as you, and did not get the offending websites you mentioned. The only thing I can think of is your computer may have some malware or viruses on it that causes your searches to not actually be searching "Google".

I would run a virus and spyware check on your computer. If you don't have any anti-virus or anti-spyware, there are plenty of free resources online. AVG has a free anti-virus and Malwarebytes will scan for spyware.

Good luck.

I get oops! This link appears broken. Happens with Google and Google Chrome. Could it be a virus? I also cannot search msn.com using Bing?


No, it is probably not a virus. Links are addresses for other pages that may not be typed correctly, or the web site/page was moved or no longer exists. (See below for clarification on unexpected results.) If you use MS Explorer, it allows you to choose primary search engines. After updating Explorer, you can keep Google as primary, but Bing will be easily accessed by clicking on the Google Icon in the search box. A menu will drop down and show Bing as an option. Also, you should be able to type Bing into any search engine and search from the Bing homepage. If you are clicking on a bing search on the MSN home page and being blocked, I'll betcha Microsoft would love to know that. Lastly, there is such a thing as Browser Hijackers. If you click on something or suddenly find yourself in an unexpected place after using a trusted search engine, that would be a hint. The solution is to keep all software updated to avoid lapses in security that allow Bugs into your system.
