I believe that a brand new hi jacker virus featuring Google and a fake doppleganger site in Germany was identified last Wednesday in the USA and South America.

Seems that you are proof that it has arrived in Europe. Suggestion is that get your anti virus and spyware programs up to date, run them and get rid of the hijacker. The Microsoft Antispyware beta program will sort this out if you have XP.

Apparently this affects the Mozilla browser as well!

I don't think that this is the 'Google worm' click here

No not a Google worm, one that emulates a google site with fake "sponsored results" section and hosted in Germany. I can only write what I read about it.
