Hello,
My computer is infected by google redirect virus. Clicking on any link - that is returned by the Google search on
a topic - will direct the Firefox to an irrelevant web page. This problem only occurs when I am using Firefox (IE works
fine) and using Google as my search engine.

I highly appreciate your assistance to resolve this problem.

Regards,
Sam

I resolved the problem, please disregard this message.
Thank you
Sam
