I am typing facebook.com bit some thing els apprearing


Most likely you have a virus that is redirecting your inputs to places the virus wants you to go. First try to clear the history in your browser. If that fails, then run a deep virus scan on the unit to attempt to find and eliminate the problem.

I start the internet and I get redirected


There is a malicious software application called the Google redirect virus. If your system is affected with this resident virus, you will be redirected most of the time. Each time you click on a favorite to reach a website, you get IE8 redirect problems - due to the Google redirect virus. I recommend a scan to know if your IE8 redirect problem is attributed to the Google redirect virus.
Not all antivirus applications can detect it. You may use Microsoft Security Essentials for regular use (it takes care of several specific types of spyware) or if you wish to go for a one time scan, you can use MS AV online scan. Once you have completed the scan and have found and removed the virus, I recommend you use the best maintenance software for Windows to avoid the problems in future.
IMPORTANT: Please clean your computer for temporary Internet files and cookies prior to running the online AV scan as they may interfere with the scan process.

If you can browse normally, it means the problem is some add-on. Start IE8 normally and disable all add-ons (Tools → Manage Add-ons). Enable them one by one to isolate the add-on that's creating the problem. You can disable or remove that add-on to prevent future IE redirects.
If you still get redirect problems, I recommend you uninstall the Internet Explorer 8 and download the "Internet Explorer Optimized for Google". This optimized version gives fewer troubles that include eliminating most IE8 redirect problems too.

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.

Run time errors with explorer, can I remove form PC and download explorer 8


Yes you can remove IE and download and install IE8. Just go to start, control panel, add and remove programs to un-install IE. http://www.ie8optimized.com/IE8/?pkw=internet%20explorer%208|&vendor=google&ocid=iSEM_G_MSNOIE8&mtcr=e|4062282459&refcd=go579736d03c&FORM=M7IE81&PUBL=GOOGLE&crea=go579736d03c

Or if you prefer, what I recommend is Mozilla Firefox http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/personal.html

I feel the Firefox is more stable, has more usable add ons, and less bloated than IE any version. I hope this helps and good luck.

Print out problem in outlook express 6


Try Re-Installing Internet Explorer in Add or Remove Programs, i.e if you have IE7 or IE8 then you Remove it from list, re-boot and re-install IE7 or IE8 BUT if you are using IE6 then you can either Update it to IE7 or IE8.

Alernatively while in Add or Remove Programs you'll see 4 options in the Left hand side pane, choose Add/Remove Windows Components and then Uncheck Internet Explore and Outlook Express, then click Next etc, re-boot and again do the same except this time Check OE and IE.

WARNING make sure you have saved/backed up your emails b4 going on with this last method.

Best bet is to Un-Install/Remove or Update IE6? if not already done so, this is all I can suggest and if those options don't fix it then run a Anti-Malware program it picks up stuff the Anti-Virus programs can't.

Good Luck.
