I haven't been able to Google anything for three days now. Whether I enter an inquiry into the default (by choice) search box, or trying to go directly to Google.com with either Firefox or Chrome, I get the following:

I've run my antivirus and anti spyware programs on both of my computers; they report no problems. Bing.com, by the way, works just fine. Any thoughts?

Kaspersky antivirus, Malwarebytes anti-malware, Hitman Pro, and Superantispyware. All updated and full scans.
Have you tried FireFox in safe mode to see if the issue persists?

Hold down the "Shift" Key when you click on FireFox... that should open in safe mode..

Also.... before going any further, get CCleaner (AKA Crap Cleaner - I am big believer in this software). Install and run a full clean, on FF/Chrome and then clean the registry entries too.

Well there's your problem right there.
Stay off the 'hacking' and 'porn' sites and you won't need that stuff.
Learn not to click 'OK' when ever it pops up.
I'm being serious here.

I can't remember the last time I got a virus or other crud.
Free programs always come with added junk.
Like 'tool bars', 'browser extension', 'system cleaner'.
Look at the check boxes before you click.
Uncheck the ones that want to add or change anything.

Look at it this way.
All the kids you invite to your pool will pee in it if you don't tie up their . . .

Tip #2
Set a windows restore point BEFORE you install that new program.

Use this instead:
https://startpage.com/eng/?

They don't track/log your IP, don't advertise to you, and they give Google's search results, but w/o giving Google your private info.

A review about 'Startpage'.
Also, Startpage is BOGUS...Because it only encrypts your searches on Startpage, But once your landed on a website, the web master can log or trace your IP and your location....Its all BS and marketing.
The actual webpage is not encrypted by Startpage. And that particular webpage logs all your tracks, your browser, and your OS data

I'd drop them all and get Norton......The one and only. I have used Norton only for 15+ years an never had a problem.

Never said that they protect you from other webpages. However DO offer a proxy option with every search. And it isn't bogus, because they explain all the above in their privacy page (excerpt below found here):

As a search engine, and as an advertising publisher, you will find various links on our site, including but not limited to search results and sponsored results. These sites are owned and maintained by independent companies, over which StartPage has no control, and who are not covered by this privacy policy. StartPage is not liable or responsible for the content of these sites, or their collection of information and its use. Please note that this privacy policy applies only to the Startpage.com website. StartPage offers a proxy function that allows the users to see the information on external sites without disclosing their IP address to these sites. Further information on this great privacy tool can be found here.There. So.... :icon_ nana::icon_ poke:
