Help!

 I think I have some sort of virus in my computer but it is not being detected by my Norton scans.  I can't Google anything.  When I do, if I click on any results, it is "redirected" to some livesearch thing.  I can't look at my results!

Anyone have a clue what this is or how to get it to stop?

Thanks in advance.

 try this site, I am not a computer whiz by any means. This site calls it a browser hijacker. I think it might help you. http://blog.yoocare.com/how-to-remove-mytotalsearch-com-completely-from-your-computer/

It's a virus. I would suggest taking it to a computer tech and having them load you with a fresh copy of Windows. Good luck.
