Although I consider myself fairly astute at resolving computer issues, this one has gotten the best of me. When I do a Google search using Firefox 3.0.6, i get randomly redirected to non-related sites when i select a google provided link. Sometimes clicking on the link is successful; othertimes i'm redirecting to anything but what I was looking for.

I've run (in safe mode) Malwarebytes anti-malware, Super AntiSpyware Free Edition, Spy-bot 1.6, AdAware, as well as McAfee. I've been "successful" in removing a few trojans (vundo), but nothing has helped the redirect problem.

My HiJack log is:
