   The better fix:
   What you will do here is the short fix listed above, plus you will also
   run several Malware programs, remove all old versions of Java and
   download the new Java.  If that doesn't cure your problem you may
   need to run some more serious software. Here are the steps:

   1. Do the 'short fix' listed above.
   2. Remove old versions of Java by downloading  JavaRa and unziping
      it to your desktop.
   3. Double-click on JavaRa.exe to start the program and Click on
      Remove Older Versions.
   4. Download and install the latest version of Java (Most
      likely the first download you see here).
   5. Install Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware
   6. Update them, run them, and delete all bad stuff.
   7. Shutdown, restart, run them again.
   8. If you are clean then test for redirects in
   9. If no redirects: Sing Hallelujah.
