    Problems with Google Search


    I am having trouble with my version of Windows 10 Professional. It comes under the category of unwanted pop ups, but this is new.

    If I go to google and input a query say about Windows 10, well I get the search results. However, in the top line on the screen it gives me a second tab and this one is about buying Anderson Windows for my house? What goes on here?

    That is just an example.Whenever, Input a query it does give me the search results, but I always get a second tab where it finds some tab that takes my google query literally.

    Another example is when example is when I input a query about say a search engine. It literally sends me a second tab at the top of the screen about where I can find a mechanic to work on my car's engine.

    This happens whether I am using Chrome, Firefox or Microsoft Edge. iI is not particular to any any of them. It happens on all three.

    How do I stop this?

    Possible in fected browser add-on.

    What happens when you use another search engine .. change the default search engine to DuckDuckGo, for example. If it still happens, then more then likley a browser hijack.

    Run
    Malwarebytes
    and/or
    AdwCleaner

    Close all browsers
    Run software
    Delete/quarantine all finds
    Reboot

    Re-check problem

    Try this in Google Chrome:
    1) Press the three vertical dots in the top-right corner of Google Chrome
    2) Press: Settings
    3) On the left side, press: Advanced
    4) Then press: Reset and clean up
    5) On the right side, press: Clean up computer (do not accidentally press the first option)
    6) Either check or uncheck the box, then press: Find
    (This scan will only search for problems that is interfering with Google Chrome and not touch any of your personal files)
    7) Leave that tab open until the scan is complete. Hopefully it finds the problem.

    Still have problem with Browser


    I ran tronscript, it cleaned up my computer. It did not fix the browser problem.

    I am still getting unwanted hits whenever I click on the in a internet in in a google search result.

    I click on that link and I get it, plus an ad for say the games of thrones link. It work on Chrome, IE explorer and Firefox.

    They all display the same problem. Is there some software that can fix it? If so what it it?
