Any results on all search engines I have tried are affected. Yahoo, google etc. The Relsults look legitimate when you read the description but the URLs listed for the links are to other sites. This happened with both users of the computer although it took several days before the second user was affected. Spybot and AdAware have not helped.

Please download Combofix and save to your desktop:Note: It is important that it is saved directly to your desktop
Close any open browsers.
Double click on combofix.exe and follow the prompts.
When it's finished it will produce a log.
Post the contents of the C:\ComboFix.txt into your next reply.
Note: Do not mouseclick combofix's window whilst it's running.
That may cause the program to freeze/hang.
