How do I find out what redirect virus I have and how do I remove it. I have mcaffee antivirus but not sure if it wasn't on there before I installed it.

Go to and download HijackThis. Install it and click to Scan and Save a Log. The redirect will show up in the first few entry lines - R0 and R1 - possibly F2 but only tick to remove something if you're sure about it. If you aren't, copy and paste that log back here for analysis.

HJT isn't always a complete fix - it's a guide to what needs fixing so the problem will not necessairly go away after using it.
