after I log on to my home page, almost immediately (and many times before I click anything), I am being re-routed to a Gateway page that says something like "we couldn't find doubleclick.adblahblahblah, so here's a list of other sites to pick. This will happen routinely during my time on-line, no matter what site I am on.

Hi there,

We can try the manual removal of this infection if you are comfortable with handling registry editing. For this visit the link here

If you are not comfortable with this :
Please follow these steps to remove this from the system :
1) Download and install the STOPzilla program from here
2) Run a scan using this installed program

This should get rid of the double click.

If it does not , visit this link, download the software and it will get rid of this virus.

If you still have problems, we will try manual removal or use other spywares.
