When I try to use any search engine (google, yahoo, msn), I get search results that have what I searched for in the results but ALSO "freeantivirus", etc... as part of the web address. It says "loading 18.104.22.168..." at the bottom left of the screen no matter what search engine I use. I think this is a virus/malware/trojan of some sort but I don't know how to get rid of it. I have run SpySweeper & Norton Internet Security with no results. I also tried Spybot and Malwarebytes and it found some things and I "fixed" them but it didn't help with the search engine problem. System restore won't work on my computer (I think that's a problem with NIS but not sure). I have deleted the temporary folders, cookies, and caches. I have Window XP, Service Pack 3 and lately I've been using Firefox instead of IE. I'm not sure what my options are at this point. I was thinking of trying Windows Washer but not sure if that will help or hurt. I don't want to have to swipe out everything and reinstall windows. Any help would be appreciated!!!!
