I am currently working on a Windows XP Professional installation. It is up to date and protected by Kaspersky Interenet Security 2009 (v 18.104.22.1686).
Using Internet Explorer 7, a Google search using the boolean value of "hp" should not result in this page:
with the bad URL's.
Firefox is unaffected by whatever this is that is having its way with IE7.
I have run Hijack This! in Safe Mode and analyzed its results at www.hijackthis.de without any change in behavior.
I need help with this dysfunctional behavior.
