We had the Antivirus Pro spyware over the weekend and successfully removed it. We now have Kapersky Antivirus and Malwarebytes.
Just today, my search engines stopped working properly. If I type in the name of a store, for example, it doesn't find that store's website. It's returning almost the same results every time.... similiarfind.com, something about TV girlfriends (??), movie reviews, coupons, etc, but not what I'm looking for.
I cleared my cookies and browsing history, I uninstalled IE 8 and installed IE7 (I haven't liked IE8 since I switched to it a couple weeks ago and thought that might help to start my browser over). I tried Firefox. all the same results. I ran a full scan with both Kapersky and Malwarebytes - nothing. I don't know what else to do. I feel lost without being able to search for things. Can anyone help?

Sounds like my problem that is posted right next to yours. Some crap that IE8/SP3 installed has tanked search engines.
