The instructions were already posted by me in a previous post.
I have increased the font size so they can be more visible.


But that's not an answer -- that's just a form for me to send my information to BitDefender. What is the answer that you sent to other people that seems to have fixed their problem?

Each case is different,it depends from case to case,there are different files that produce this redirect.

I am having the same problem. Any time I click a link on Google it occasionally redirects me to find-answers-fast.com or that yellowpages site. Can you send me the e-mail on how to troubleshoot this? I would really appreciate it.

Does this issue only happen on FF? If yes, you might want to try reinstalling it.

Recently the google redirects are caused due to an infected Add-on/Extension in Firefox called: XUL Cache.
You should remove it immediately no matter if Firefox is your default browser or not.
