Hi, tsganapathie!

 

What browser do you use?

Do you have any search toolbars installed such as Yahoo Toolbar, Google Toolbar, WhenU, etc.?

the webpage(s) you are being redirected to... is it the same page (or do they look similar at least).

 

In Kaspersky settings, is "spyware, adware and dialers" ticked?

Thanks for your response.

I have this problem when i try from firefox and IE as well.

I am using Kaspersky internet security 6.0.2.614

I suspect this may be due to virus.

Sounds like a spyware problem to me...what Anti-Spyware are you using in your PC? Try using Spyware Doctor or SpySweeper or Spy Sweeper. This apps will help you a lot in solving spyware/adware problems :)

I don't know about the google search bar, but the Yahoo toolbar has a default setting that "suggests" something in the Yahoo database. For example, if you enter 'forum.kaspersky.com' and you have this default setting enabled, you will NEVER get here...

Second, I think you should check your Hosts File: WINDOWS/System32/Drivers/Etc

There you will see a file called 'hosts'. You can open it in Notepad. Please paste the contents of that file here. As MAPKOBKA^^ said, the file might be compromised. In that case you are redirected to something else each time...
