I'm being redirected to websites other than the ones I put in the address bar or click on at Google.
The URL's I click on/type in the address bar are many times being redirected to other sites, mostly http://www.microsoft.com/windows/about/customizelinks.mspx or the URL for my Hotmail account.
This has just begun happening in the past week or so. A longer-term problem is redirection to other sites when clicking on links on Google. Sometimes a double click will prevent this from happening on Google, sometimes not.
Any help greatly appreciated!

Your plugins list shows outdated plugin(s) with known security and stability risks.
- Shockwave Flash 10.1 r53
- Java Plug-in 1.6.0_05 for Netscape Navigator (DLL Helper)
Update the Java plugin to the latest version.
- http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp#jdk (you need JRE)
Update the Flash plugin to the latest version.
Apologies for my tardy Thank You! I already had Malwarebytes and now have downloaded the other three recommended ones. Problem seems to have subsided. I will also try the other three....Windows Defender, updating the Java plugin, and updating the Flash plugin.
