Something is "hijacking" your web-browser(s).

Look in the C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC folder
for the file named 'HOSTS'. Open the 'Notepad' program
(All Programs -> Accessories -> Notepad) and drag-and-drop that file into Notepad. Ignore all the lines that start with '#' -- they are just "comments". If there are many entries, some computer-virus has updated that file, to point to "malicious" web-sites.

How do I change back to google


If you are simply using Google Chrome, the easiest way is to go to where it says "Search". Next to it there should be a drop down box. Click on Google.

If you are using other browsers and have other issues, the following may help.

If Firefox, try clicking on Get started on the following page:

http://www.google.com.au/intl/en/homepage/search/sp-firefox.html

It also depends whether your present start page has come about because of some tool bar or ad-in you have installed. If the later is the case, you may have to uninstall that toolbar. Some toolbars are so persistent that changing gets tedious. If the process gets really painful, consider the possibility of going back to a system restore point set before you made the change. (You would have to reinstall software installed after that restore point.)

For the more adventurous, you could manually change a lot of settings particular to which browser you are using and what ad-ins are in play. Try googling "change my search to Google in "fill in the blank" browser.

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.

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.

Search engine brings up something different than what I put in to search


Typically I believe Y! and IE work hand in hand. Since IE is the default browser of choice on most computers. I know there is a Google/IE hijacker which will briefly flash your correct results then redirect to an alternate page. You may want to take care of that.
