When I type in a site in Google and click on the site I want to visit Firefox sends me to a completely different site such as www.admarketplace.com and sites selling home and car insurance. Could this be a virus or a program has changed my settings as it's really annoying and have no clue how to check if this is a virus or if my settings have been changed.

Im using Kaspersky and SpyWare Guard, haven't had any problems up to now.

Seems pretty "Virus-Like" to me...

Please head over to the Malware Removal section

And make sure to read HERE first before.

Sounds like a browser hijacker.
