    not sure what caused it but recently whenever i do google searches and click on the links it always gets redirected to some random site. also, when i copy paste the addy, sometimes it will work and sometimes it will say the site cant be found. also noticed at the same time none of my spyware and anti virus programs will update. they act as if i have no internet connection. can someone help me out? thanks

    this just happened to my boss. it is some sort of virus/malware associated with the "Anti Virus 2008/09" worm, that try's to get you to buy the full version of this fake program.

    Update your anti-virus program, and download MalwareBytes Anti-Malware. Run both programs in safe mode.
