    Hi All,

    I have several problems with my pc which I believe could be all related hence I will list them here, any help would be greatly appreciated.

    First of all ever since I went to a kids games web site for my nephew all the adverts on the normal websites I visit have now turned into adverts
    advertising various sexual products.

    Every time I google a website that I frequently use and click on the link when the results come up it takes me to another search site results page or to a site selling sexual products. Whereas before clicking on the link would take me direct to the desired website

    I currently run Mcafee which I upgraded earlier this year, I also run Spyhunter on a regular basis.

    Normally when running the Spyhunter sofware it gets rid of all the trojans etc and it is some time before I have to run it to do another scan. Now though I notice the same trojans reappearing, it's becoming less and less effective.
    Recently whenever I run up Spyhunter it asks me to run the software update however when I do this an error comes and I am unable to update it.

    I also get the impression that my Mcafee virus software is becoming less and less effective. The other day a pop up warning came up saying that there was an error and said I should re-install the 3 user software.

    I hope I am making sense here guys.:confused:
