Fantisyworld.com/... Answered

Every time I google something, or yahoo something, (For example, Instructables, which I did) it redirects me to fantasyworld.com or something like, then when I click backspace, my ant-virus thing kicks in and tells me that the website will give me virus and trojans and what not, and gives me the option to leave the site. Has this been happening to anyone else?

Indeed. After that, keep them installed in case it happens again, and use Avira or AVG antivirii

If you are looking for a good malware killer, try malware bytes. The free version has killed every malware that I've ever gotten, and it might work for you as well!

It didn't. It took me to some page about a certain body organ control

You probably got a case of malware from some site. Anti-virus stuff is usually ineffective against malware and scanning with malware removers sometimes doesn't cure the problem. It might be a good time to learn how to backup/reinstall your machine or maybe upgrade to a different OS like Ubuntu. A clean wipe/install is the only guarantee that your problem won't get worse. I've learned to have a backup PC standing by in case of hardware crashes or an infected computer. Good luck.
