Browsers not accessing web pages, only search results...

Ratcatcher2000
Hello,

I am having two problems, maybe they're related...

First, Chrome and Firefox are not accessing web pages, only the search results. When I click on a search result (or a bookmarked page) I get a blank loading screen which goes on foreever....

Not sure if this is related to the Conduit bar I have inadvertently installed... Dopey I know, but I'm npot the techiest person in the world and think it may have come from Bit Torrent or some such. Anyway, I need to fix this problem fast, plese help!

Cheers,

Steve

    Try malwarebytes, spybot, or any other reputable antimalware program.

    If you do NOT have the same problem with web pages in safe mode, then it is almost certainly a virus.

    Try CNET for download points. Download these programs from a 'clean' computer onto a flash drive, install, and see what happens.
