Hello,

I'm currently running Google Chrome, and whenever I try to get to my facebook homepage, it boots me over to a Mapquest page. This doesn't happen on any other websites, just facebook, and it goes to the same Mapquest page everytime. I opened IE, and it does the same thing. I've got an HP Pavilion laptop and am running Vista.

Thanks!

I suspect you have a virus problem. You should do a virus scan and check for "browser helper" programs that are re-directing your web access.

Good Luck
just download this file and do a scan in safe mode to remove any TrojanDNS changers....

Greetings,

Your redirecting issue can be easily be fixed but,

To fix the problem, I must have a Hyjacthis log.

Please download, install and request a scan and save a log. Copy the log and post it here.
