Everytime I type in a search topic or click a website link I get redirected to a completely different website. Is this a virus? How di I get rid of it?

    It's not a virus - there are no known viruses for the iPad.


    First thing I'd suggest is shut down Safari - double-tap the home button to bring up multi-tasking, press on an app icon (doesn't have to be Safari) until they wiggle and red circles appear in top left corner, then press the red corner to shut the app.


    Next step is a hard restart - http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1430 . Often takes care of problems.
