Firefox 3.5.2/Chrome

Google results are being redirected, most often to "shopica" branded sites. But, only the first three tries. Keep clicking and going back and you get to the proper destination.

Zone Alarm is always running.

I've scanned with Spybot, Anti-Malware, AVG, and SuperSpyBot. No Infections

I've uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox in a different directory to no avail.

Searched for overlay.xul as suggested in other forums. Not found.

No Firefox extensions accept NoScript (to stop this from happening.)

I haven't noticed any other problems.
