Why is it that when I use a search engine to find something, I click on the link and ALWAYS get re directed to some other site?
That may be a browser hijack. This can either be caused by a virus so to do away with it, you will have to install antivirus in your system. Then, try browsing and see whether you will have pop ups.
You should try a different search engine. They don't all come up with the same list.
different chooses to chose from to best fit your needs
