So basically, any search I try and do with Google turns up ad-oriented entries; I dare not click on any in fear of drive-by malware and the like. Is this like a browser hacker or something? I've tried scanning with these programs:



Spybot S&D

Super Antispyware

None turn up anything, and I'm not sure what I'd have to look for in Hijackthis. I should also note that Internet Explorer doesn't even work. I use Mozilla Firefox for my web browsing.

Any ideas? Any programs you recommend for me to get rid of this? I can't search anything about this issue, obviously.
