    When I search for something on Google and click on the link to the searched item. I am taken to a completely different "JUMP" site?
    I have cleared the Cache in Firefox and the problem continues. It is doing the same thing in Safari and I have cleared the Cache and Re-set Safari and the problem still continues....
    Any advice please. I am not very technical, so speak in basics please and thanks!!!

    Is this on every link on google? or just the top ones that are sometimes highlighted? or the ones on the right hand side?

    Where does the "jumping" take you to? a utterly random site each time?

    It happened on every link from Google. Didn't matter where on the page they came from.
    The "jumping" took me to other search engines.

    Whatever happened has now been rectified. Either by running ONYX which I downloaded and/or from the prev suggestion of Command-Shift-3.... what did that do??

    Thanks for the help. I would still be very interesting in knowing what set this off.
