links in IE8 keep switching to ask.com

HI
Recently, occasionally when clicking on a link on a web page in IE8, instead of going to the linked page, IE8 opens up a query in ask.com.

I have checked add-ons, done a regedit for ask.com, used spyware doctor and Macafee antivirus but can't find any reference to ask.com. link works fine in Firefox

any thoughts?

On the search bar in tools.Click on to the little arrow on the right hand side.
Make sure Google is the default web browser and if Ask.com is there remove it.
