    Default Internet Explorer Redirecting


    My sister has done something to her laptop! Maybe 4 times out of 10 when a google search is instigated or a link clicked the computer redirects to a random site e.g. missingpage*com via a random IP address.

    I have been reading a number of forums over the last 2 days and run full scans from both Windows Defender and F-Secure (which we have the full version of) neither of which found anything. Spybot Search & Destroy found a couple of minor issues which it removed but the problem persists.

    I am now finding that some programmes I have downloaded won't load as they are being flagged as 'not valid win32 applications'...

    I have finally admitted defeat and am throwing myself upon your mercy!

    Many thanks and Merry Christmas
