Is it just when you are using IE?

If so, type WinButton+R and write down:
notepad %systemroot%\System32\drivers\etc\hosts

Open in new window


Se if there is any line with "superfish.com" or "63.131.144.20*" written.
If there is, then delete it.

Remember to save the changes and the original text in another file as well for backup purposes.

Far as I can tell, it is an error in the jQuery package Google is using for the menus.

Get MalwareBytes then update it and scan.

If that doesn't fix it, try TDSSKiller.

For future readers:
The comment at: http:#a34973951 does not account for 'how' that entry got made in the HOSTS file.

Simply removing it does not address the problem of how.

The 'First Response' on Browser re-directs (at this time) should be as recommended by 'edbedb':
