Everytime I do a search on either Yahoo or Google, It never goes to the page I click on. Instead it goes to some sort of apartment finder or some such thing. A number 2 shows up next to the  the link window and one of these sites appears. This started today. This is a fresh install of Windows XP.

Operating system

XP media edition

Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of the database. - Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware - SuperAntispyware - Spybot Search & Destroy - Ad-Aware Free - Windows Defender: Home Page ..........
