I tried to read previous posts about search engines crashing. All that I read said they were also redirected to ad pages. This does not happen to me but when I click on too many things, then I just get knocked off. I couldn't keep reading other posts to find this problem because I had to get back online and log in again! It started with Internet Explorer so I downloaded Firefox, then Google Chrome and finally Safari. One by one, the same problem happened so now all of them crash. I also have a problem with my Ad-Aware saying it is turned off and when I try to turn it on, it says "initializing engine" but nothing ever happens. I uninstalled it and reinstalled but it has the same problem. Also, I don't seem to be able to use Flash Player unless I go online with Google Chrome. I can follow directions but other than that, I don't really know a lot about figuring this stuff out! Please help. Thank you. Susan

Hi SueTD
Try flushing the DNS "how to" below;
1.Click Start
2.Click Run
3.Type: cmd
4.Press Enter
5.Run: ipconfig /flushdns
Once you have done this I would also clear all cookies as well.

This is a Safari issue so either uninstall it altogether or revert back to an older version.

Sounds to me like you may have picked up a virus or some other kind of malware. Go to the Virus, Spyware, Malware Removal forum, read the first post and follow instructions.

Come back here once you get a clean bill of health if you still have problems.
