off topic - Virus affecting Google searches RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • When I enter a Google search and retrieve "finds" on my subject, if I click on one of the finds, instead of being directed to it, I am immediately directed to a rogue site which says "Relevant Topics" and it gives me a list of commercial websites which may have something to do with my search.  In addition, it has a pop-up bar which offers various sexual links.  The URL of this virus shows as 85.255.120.26/26/feed/search.PAP?tpl=   Can anyone help me get rid of this?  It keeps me from using Google as a search tool.
