A redirect of your Google searches will automatically take you to another (often malicious) site anytime you perform a regular Internet search (rather than seeing the standard Google search results page). This is most often the result of a virus, spyware or malware instance on your computer. SpyBot Search and Destroy is a anti-spyware application that can detect the root of your Google redirect problems and remove it, restoring your computer to working order.
