laptop search on google has been taken over

  Nessie 09:24 22 Jul 2007

I am running IE 7 on my XP pro Laptop. Recently I have been doing searches on google which come up correctly but if I click on something it redirects me to another site that is nothing to do with what I clicked on. I have done virus and spyware etc searches and found nothing. Any ideas

You may have a hijack...

open ie and then tools, options. reset the deafaults for ie.

then delete the link in favourites for google.

then try and enter google again and set it to default home page.

Run Spybot Search and Destroy

If this does not work you will need to run hijackthis, on the new PCA magazine. follow the direction given in the mag. do not post a log here...
