The PC's control panel contains Internet options capable of stopping redirects. The Internet options menu is located within a few subsets of the PC's control panel. To alter the PC's Internet options, click on the Windows icon or the Start button, then select Control Panel. Click Network and Internet, then select Internet Options. Within the new window, click the Advanced tab, and check the boxes that read "Warn me when websites try to redirect," "Use SSL 2.0" and "Use SSL 3.0." These settings prevent or notify users of all redirects.
If redirects are the result of a virus, such as adware or spyware, the user must either uninstall software affecting the browser and system or remove all add-ons, toolbars and extensions.
To uninstall a damaged program, access the start menu and select Control Panel. Click "Uninstall a program," and in the subsequent list of installed programs, search for a program that might be altering the browser. Double click on the suspicious program to uninstall it.Learn more about Internet & Networking
