    For the past couple days whenever I search on google the results redirect me to other pages. I have tried several times to stop it, but nothing has worked. I use firefox on my Macbook Air Mac OSX 19.6.4 processor 1.6 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo Memory 2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM. I got the MBA from my Mom's friend and it didn't have any problems until last week. Thanks in advance for anyone's help.

    More info - what other pages, what happens if you use other search engines, which browser, is it the same on all?

    It happens in both Firefox and Safari. It happens on Google and Yahoo but not Bing. When I hover on a link in google it shows

    http://r3.google.com/click?q=what I searched for&lnk=the link that I want to click on/&ref=http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&source=hp&q=what I serached for

    When I click the link it loads for a bit, shows the above then take me to another site other than the one I wanted to go like clicksseearchfree.com or juggle.com, toseeka.com
    On yahoo the status bar says what I'm hovering over then when I click it the same things happen.
    I hope this helps, I really don't know what to do so any help will be appreciated.
