You have a virus that is redirecting your searches.....had the same one earlier this year and it was a pain to remove but finally did.....

Try this....when you insert your search words and hit return....whatever the url is that appears immediatly hit the X at the end of the string....that will stop the search before the redirect hits.....use this method to search for redirect virus malware fix remedy....

The fix I found was posted on the web and I found it by searching using this method so the redirect wouldn't overtake...or use someone's clean machine to do the search. Don't spend any money on a 3rd party product or freeware.....there are detailed procedures you can follow to fix the problem.
