Links on IE not working-Driving me batty!
This is probably a real easy fix....I just don't know what it is. I was
messing with my add-ons and as such, have made a mess.

When I do a google search, and then click on a link to take me directly to
the site I want as a result of the google search, I get redirected to a sales
type site like Matt's help or funplace.com...rather than the link I clicked
on.

Can anyone advise me?

Hi,
This doesn't sound like a problem you could cause by messing around with
add-ons.

You probably have malware installed (adware, spyware, hijacker, trojan,
etc.)

See these sites for help:

Hope this helps,
