Ok techies I have a problem. Whenever I google something it seems that more times than not, when I click on the address I want, it takes me to some generic redirected thing like for yellow pages. Any ideas why?

Well that got really complicated for the non-techie me! I ended up unistalling my antivirus software so I could reset my computer to an earlier time, then installed the antivirus software again. It seems to have worked. *knock on wood*

Thanks Rosey, that made my morning. So does that sound like an option that will work? I hope that question makes since!

Keep this around, too, and updated. It will catch stuff antivirus doesn't, and there's a free version.

Ugh it detected 9 objects (couldn't see the whole names): adware install, adware arcade, pum hijack, and a trojan thing! I removed them, hope that was what I was supposed to do!
