Need help with browser redirecting to other sites


Recommended Posts



My browser has been redirecting me to sites other than the intended one. This happens not only when I attempt to go to a particular site directly, but also when I try to go back a page while I'm on a site. 


On some sites the back-key doesn't work, nor do any links or subsequent page numbers. Oftentimes the only option is to close out of the site completely. I've read that this could be a redirect virus. I've tried a number of suggestions I found online, including Malwarebytes Anti-malware, Super Anti-spyware, Adwcleaner, Avast Anti-virus (my current virus program), Rkill, Hitman, and Kapersky virus removal tool, and each one has come up clean.


My main browser is Opera 35, but experience the same issues when I use Firefox and Internet Explorer (haven't yet tried Google Chrome).


System info: Windows XP Pro, Service Pack 3, Browsers: Opera 35, Firefox, and IE.


Any help would be very much appreciated.
