Unwanted Website Redirecting

Posted

I will type a link or click on a link that I want to go to and I'll be directed there and once I get to the website, I'm suddenly directed to "onlinefwd.com" and I've tried blocking it but that doesn't even work. This has never happened before and started just a few days ago when I wanted to use Firefox instead of Google Chrome for something.

Do a malware check with some malware scanning programs on the Windows computer.
You need to scan with all programs because each program detects different malware.

Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of their databases before doing a scan.

You can also do a check for a rootkit infection with TDSSKiller.
