I recently discovered that every item I enter into a search engine (whether it be Google, Yahoo, etc.) yields a list of useless, entirely unrelated "spam" websites. I think this could be a virus of some sort but I'm not entirely sure. Also, I tried to run the f-prot virus scan but it would not work. I am fairly certain that this just happened within the hour, because I was using these search engines successfully earlier today. Does anyone know what problem this could be, and the steps that I should take to fix it? My computer is currently shut down, and I am using another one to write this message.

Thanks for your help,

Hey again,

I just realized that maybe I should have clarified that literally every result I get on these search engines is a spam-based site. For instance, if I were to type in "Drew University" on any search engine, all of the results would be unrelated, spam-based websites and the normal results like "www.drew.edu" would not be included.

I find this to be very odd.

Alright, I'm pretty sure I just took care of the problem.
