    Hello:

    I believe my home computer has been hacked. Whenever I
    go to a particular webiste, I am forwarded to another
    site automatically. It is clearing it is some sort of
    joke, because it is a site no one would want to go to.
    It is apparent that this is a problem on my computer
    only. How can I correct this?
