Search engine trouble

My normal search engine was MSN when typing a subject in the address bar. For some reason, when I type in a subject such as PC Advisor in the address bar, it brings up a message saying that I am being re-directed. Googles search engine then appears. Any Ideas on how to change it?

Thanks

I have a norton firwall and antivirus installed - I would of thought that this would have knobled any attack?!

I think I am right in saying that Firewalls and Anti-virus programs offer LITTLE or NO protection against adware or spyware.
I would take up rawprawn's advice and install both 'Spybot' and 'Ad-aware'.
You may also want to install 'Spyware Blaster' which stops spyware getting on your PC in the first place.
