What is wrong with my Google Chrome browser?
Every time I try to search for something I get redirected to a website I have no interest in. How do I fix my Google Chrome?
Can you please provide some more detail? It's a bit tough trying to help you with such little information. What are you searching for? What search engine are you using? Do you successfully find what you're looking for using a different browser (and if so, which one/s)?
I click on Google Chrome and use the Google search engine. Every word or thing I search for redirects me to another website that I am not interested in. I have to back space and search it again then it works the second time.
Mmmmm. I'm afraid your guess of having a virus might be right :-( Sorry I can't be of more help...best of luck with it. Ironic that you can't google this problem, because you can't get google results...
It sounds like you need to fix your settings! Go to the tool that looks like a wrench on the far right hand side of Chrome. From there, click on settings and see if your box under "Search" says "Google". If it does, make sure that the "Enable Instant" box is unchecked.
try clearing browsing data type this to your chrome browser address bar chrome://settings/advanced then clear all browsing data. Good luck
You may have a browser redirect virus like my computer infection. Scan with your virus software.
OHHHHHH I KNOW WHAT IS HAPPENING..
You are experiencing the feature of google called "instant results", when you start typing it tries to guess at what it is you are looking for, if you hit enter, it will give you what it thought you wanted rather than what you really wanted.
You can turn off the "instant results" option by going to
gear icon -> search settings and setting "instant results" to off..
It then should stop with that search completion "hubbub"..
