I will just be reading a page on my computer and it will go to google images on it's own. This is getting so unbearable and I don't know how to make it stop. I took off google desktop – but that didn't help. My computer says there are no virus' on it – but something is wrong and it's driving me crazy. It won't stop and has been doing this for a couple months. Can someone PLEASE help me?

please tell me this happens only when you try to move the mouse over the image.I dont think it is a virus , or somebody would have written a redirect script on mouse click as shown below
<script>window.location="link"</script>

can you send me the link of that web page.

No – unfortunately I am not moving the mouse – I am not touching the computer at all. It just goes to google images on it's own. Any suggestions?

Here is another one. It is so aggravating. I swear I am not touching the mouse – not even the keyboard.

Install adblock which is a firefox extension , once installed and restarted firefox .give the below link to be blocked. next time it wont redirect
" ad.doubleclick.net/*\".
hope it helps.

Adblocks are good for removing ads from websites you go to, but they are NOT the answer to malware installed on your computer. They won't remove this effect, and even if they do, much bigger problem is this malware software running on the background on the computer, being controlled by the hacker, most likely logging passwords and bank accounts, sending spam.

Sorry, but the only save and reasonable thing to do ad this point is to back-up your data, format the drive, and re-install the operating system.
