Hello all,

any ideas on why the adidas icon appears even if the search word does not start with these letters "ad"?

Thank you!

Hi, it looks like there's potentially some malware or adware on your machine which is redirecting your search engine.

Would you be willing to give a little more information so we might be able to block it for other people? If so:

  • Do you know if you installed or downloaded something recently which it could have come with?
  • If you visit the search, what URL do you end up with?
  • If you go to the three bar menu -> add-ons, are there any suspicious add-ons you don't recognise?

If you just want to get rid of it, then after checking for add-ons and removing them, if removing those add-ons doesn't work, then try something like MalwareBytes to check for malware/adware.
