Search Engine Redirect problem

Recommended Posts

I'm having an issue with using search engines. They currently redirect me(but not all the time) to random sites, rather to the one I want to view. I've searched the forum a bit on this issue but I figured it would be best to ask for help on this issue.

A couple current problems that may be related to this?:

Malwarebytes won't update the database(just seems to 'hang' then closes out the program)

Avira Antivir won't update its database either.

I appreciate you taking your time to read this and to help me.

Thank you,
