Both IE and Firefox are redirecting. Go to google and put in "cheese making" (used this as a test) and it comes up with the normal results. Click on second link which goes to biology.clc.uc.edu/Fankhauser/Cheese/cheese.html and instead it redirects some place and then ends up on hxxp://www.shopica.com/search.php?q=cheese_making

Does this on all searches.

Logged into the router and captured the log to see what was going on and found the strange sites it was hitting. See report.rtf

Posted in the wrong forum and was given those great instructions and have attached the three files.

Please let me know if you have another post that covers this and I can follow those directions.

Folks - Please don't work on this one. The friend that I was doing this for had someone come and clean it off. They used combofix and some other tools.

Thanks for the great work that you are doing for the community.
