I am trying to click on links on a partucilar website and I keep getting sent to other sites like google or travel sites that are not assiciated with the original site as if my settings in "Content" are not allowing me to do so but those settings are fine. Any other reason or setting I can check as to why this is happening?

Hello and welcome to Geeks To Go.

Being redirected like that can be caused by a parental filter, or your browser could be hijacked. If you know you do not have a parental filter, I would strongly suspect an infection. If that is the case:

Please follow all the directions found here. After you get to step 5, if your problem is not resolved, post a HijackThis log in the Malware forum. If your problem persists after getting a clean bill of health from a malware expert, return here and we'll continue troubleshooting.

Keep in mind, the malware forum is very busy and can take up to 5 days to receive a reply. There is a special forum called The Waiting Room if you've been waiting for 3 or more days. You can put a link to your topic & a short description of your problem and someone will get with you soon.
