I'm running 10.5.4 on an imac.

I was having problems with safari redirecting itself to other websites - 'copybook' being the most notable one - it was doing it pretty frequently, maybe 1 in 3 times. I did the obvious 'delete history/cookies' and when that didn't work I 'reset' the program, ticking every box possible. The problem appeared to be fixed for a few hours, but has started to return.

At this point I thought 'stuff it, firefox is good, I'll just run that instead'. The same problem has now started to happen in it as well.

Needless to say it's incredibly annoying, and I need it fixed. I'm no expert with osx unfortunately, and I don't know how to clean it up.

What are my options?

Thanks for any responses
