Internet 'jump'

Just recently my internet won't go where I want - it says redirecting or jump and goes where it wants - then I go back to the search and try the link again it it goes where it should.  Please help - am going crazy - have tons of anti-spy stuff - nothing - oh using xp w/ auto updates. 

Thanks so much

Hello,

That 'tons of anti-spy stuff' could very well be the cause of your problems.

You should only be running one quality anti-spy stuff, and one quality antivirus program. Just what all you have installed for antivirus and anti-spy stuff?

Re: Internet 'jump'

Hello again,

If I may suggest ...

Keep Trend micro PC-cillin. Uninstall Spyware Dr, Never think about installing anything from Mc Afee. Do not install or try any other anti-spy or anti malware.

What antivirus are you running?

Thanks for the reply...

Uninstalled Spyware Dr. - thought that McAfee was really good stuff - thanks for the tip.

Antivirus - ummm, that was what I thought Trend micro PC-cillin 12 was doing - is there something else we need?

 

Thanks so much,

Lake Joy
