When I search in Yahoo or Google, the results are related to my search. However, when I click on a result, it takes me to a completely different URL. I was using AVG and then tried Ad Aware to detect, but neither of these found a problem. I have attached a HijackThis log file. I have reached the limits of what I know and any help is greatly appreciated.

Since there is no feedback anymore, I assume this issue is resolved ... so, this Topic is closed.
If you need this topic reopened for continuations of existing problems, please request this by sending me a PM with the address of the thread. This applies only to the original topic starter.

Everyone else please begin a New Topic.
