Hello, Tom.

results.googleadservices.com has hijacked your system, that's why you are redirected each time. You need to get rid of it.

One method is to download (from another computer, of course), install and run Spybot and/or Malwarebytes. But they may not get rid of the problem.

Then, run System Restore (the way to get to System Restore is different for different operating systems). Choose System Restore and choose a date when your system worked OK. Note: with System Restore, everything, including your documents and other files you saved on the hard drive, will roll back to that date.

Hope this helps.

How do you remove/delete google reader from following me


In order to protect internet searchers, Google set up a notice to warn users that they are visiting a new page when being redirected from the Google search URL. From here a user can see that the browser is redirecting them, and can choose to visit the site or return to the Google search page. Unfortunately, occasionally this notice may appear each time you click on a search result in Google, making it frustrating to search for anything through Google. If you get the Google redirect notice constantly, you can clear your Internet browser cache and cookies to resolve the issue.

Open the Firefox browser on your computer, and click the "Firefox" option at the top left of the program. Scroll over and hover over "History," then click on "Clear Recent History" from the drop-down menu. Select "Everything" for "Time range to clear," and place check-marks next to "Cookies" and "Cache" in the "Details" section. Click "Clear Now." Allow Firefox to delete the information, then restart the browser. Internet Explorer Open the Internet Explorer browser on your computer, and click the "Tools" (Gear icon) option at the top right of the program. Scroll down, and click on "Internet Options." Click on "Delete" beneath "Browsing history." Put check-marks next to "Cookies" and "Temporary Internet Files." Click "Delete." Allow Internet Explorer to delete the information, then restart the browser. Google Chrome Open the Google Chrome browser on your computer, and click the wrench icon at the top right of the program. Scroll down, then click "Options." Click "Under the Hood" on the left side of the browser window, then click "Clear browsing data" in the "Privacy" section. Select "the beginning of time" for the "Obliterate the following items" drop-down. Put check-marks next to "Empty the cache" and "Delete cookies and other site and plug-in data." Click "Clear browsing data." Allow Chrome to delete the information, then restart the browser.

MY INTERNET EXPLORER STOPS FREQENTLY


You might have a virus or infection that is causing it.

First open your Internet Options in the Control Panel (it might be under Network) and go to the Advanced tab and hit the Reset button to reset Internet Explorer to the default settings.

Download and install MalwareBytes and run a Quick Scan.

Go to www.google.com and in the search box type: "Download cnet Malwarebytes" (without the quotes). Download and install malwarebytes from the sites download.cnet/malwarebytes. When the site opens up click on the Green Download button on the left. Do not click the Red Download button, that's junk. When it finishes installing the Gui Interface will open up with an offer to Accept a Trial Version or Decline. CLICK DECLINE you want the totally free version. Run a QUICK SCAN. As it scans, if it finds infections the number will be in red. When it finishes scanning, click SHOW RESULTS. A notepad text document will open up showing you the results. You can close the text document and go back to the Gui Interface where you will click REMOVE SELECTED RESULTS. The objects will already be selected for you. When it finishes removing the objects click ok and it will sometimes reboot your machine.



Try using a better broswer. Internet Explorer is the worst.

Try downloading Mozilla Firefox, Opera and Google Chrome. Unlike Internet Explorer they install in less than 5 minutes and they are faster and safer than Internet Explorer.

Go to www.google.com and in the search box type: "Download Mozilla Firefox" (without the quotes). Download and Install Mozilla Firefox from Mozilla's website. Do the same thing for Opera and Google Chrome.

I've put the links of each one below so if you like you can just click on them to go to their site to do the download and install.

If i open now my google,google custom search was appeared instead of google chrome


If you mean you type in www.google.com and it redirects you to a custom search, it could be many things. If you are at work or school, they may have a firewall in place that redirects you to their google custom search. It could also be a temporary internet file or cookie that's redirecting you. If you're not behind a work/school firewall try deleting your browsers temporary internet files.

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?

When use search engine, always gets redirected to a different site


I just finished dealing with a similar piece of malware and I may have a solution for you. Please check the following and let me know:

1) Are Yahoo search results also being hijacked/redirected?

2) When redirected, does IE briefly access a server at "r9237242.cn" or some similar address? Watch the status bar at the bottom of IE when being redirected.

Let me know and I can help you out further.
