lses

First off before anyone can help you need to be more detailed and second off please create a new topic and do not just reply to someones eles post. I would like to make you aware of the fact the chrashing and redirecting are not the same thing, may I please have more detail? Does both Internet Explor and Crome Crash when you open them or Redirect to another web page? How long has this problem been going on? Has it gotton werse over time?

Before I advise you where to best post, I would like this detail and if you could try to reset IE browsers by doing the following and let me know if that helps.

Is browsing always slow in Internet Explorer? Does it frequently freeze or crash? Do you receive error messages that say Internet Explorer has "encountered a problem and has to close"? Or messages that a Visual C++ "runtime error" has occurred in Iexplore.exe?

If this is the case, you might want to try resetting Internet Explorer. When you reset Internet Explorer settings, all add-ins and customizations are deleted. You basically start with a fresh version of Internet Explorer. This article helps you reset Internet Explorer.

To have us reset Internet Explorer for you, go to the “Reset Internet Explorer for me” section. If you would rather reset Internet Explorer yourself, see how to do it in the "Let me reset Internet Explorer myself" section.

How the Reset Internet Explorer Settings feature works
The Reset Internet Explorer Settings feature resets the following settings:
Click here to show/hide solution

User-defined browser settings

These settings include all the customizations that you can make to Internet Explorer by using the Internet Options dialog box. For example, the Reset Internet Explorer Settings feature resets security settings, privacy settings, and zone settings for all users on the computer. Any settings that are set by add-ins or toolbars that you downloaded are also reset.

If any settings were created by the OEM before you received the computer, the Restore Internet Explorer Settings feature restores Internet Explorer customizations that were applied by the OEM in the initial package.

Note The Reset Internet Explorer Settings feature does not clear the favorites or clear the feeds. The connection settings are also not cleared, because the settings can be used in other programs.
Extensibility

The Reset Internet Explorer Settings feature disables all toolbars, browser extensions, and customizations that you install. To use any of these disabled customizations, you must selectively enable each customization through the Manage Add-ons dialog box.

Note Some toolbars may require that two or more controls are enabled to work correctly. These toolbars have controls for the corresponding Browser Helper Object and toolbar extensions. You can easily use the Manage Add-ons dialog box to enable any disabled controls that are from a trusted publisher.

For web pages that have ActiveX controls, you must approve running each ActiveX control the first time that you encounter it. After you approve running the control one time, Internet Explorer runs the control automatically any time that you encounter it.
Browsing history

The Reset Internet Explorer Settings feature deletes temporary Internet files and cookies. It also clears the browsing history, saved form data, saved passwords, and auto-complete data.

Crome:
There is no option to reset using Crome

Please let me know if that helped any with IE and the detail I asked for and I will advise you what you should do from there Before posting the in the malware fourm read this, if that does not help at I am unable to help you remove malware, but I would post the link to this threed and provide the information requested. If you do not hear back in three days follow the information here,
