For last 2 days everytime I do a 'search' I get 'if you're not redirected in 3-4-5 seconds, click here?

Posted

Here's one of the redirect I found in history: Loading site Digitach.net/redir nXeUOiKxe8FtRHQLPDwkvcnkfbedKTVFo1GkCEajM-drjx_ It happens 7 out of 10 times, with about the same googly gop. Does anyone no why this is happening for the last few days? It happens just on Firefox, not on IE. Happens if I'm use yahoo search or duck duck go. Drives me nuts.

Step one; You may have ad/mal-ware. Further information can be found in this article; https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-caused-malware?cache=no

Run most or all of the listed malware scanners. Each works differently. If one program misses something, another may pick it up.

Step two; Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?

Was still getting the redir in safe mode. I had uninstalled WPS office, but Ninite updated it so it was back on my PC. That was the only program that showed 'installed' on the date the redirects started. Uninstalled WPS and the problem disappeared. So, of course, then I had to reinstall Ninite. Thank you for your fast response, FredMcD.
