Hi, :)
For a few days now, when i try to use the internet through browsers like Firefox or Internet Explorer, when i try to access a specific page or URL it redirects or "Jump" to another unrelevant page.

Also every time i open my browser, a notification from AVG pops up. It looks like this :

(On Mozilla Firefox)
http://img22.imagesh...threatnotif.jpg
(On Internet Explorer)
http://img22.imagesh...avgthreatie.jpg

Also, after a while it fails, to connect to the internet [Says "Error Lander" when trying to load a page] (other programs like MSN still works though) and it sometimes doesn't allow AVG Free to update properly. I usually reset the internet by unplugging and plugging it back in only to find that this issue occurs again after a while of surfing on the net. :)

Please help me with this problem, it’s been driving me nuts! :)
Thanks in Advance.

Please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE.

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.
