Hi there and thanks for taking time to read my post.

I have been working on a fix for my current issue from another post/conversation - you can read it here:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/274339/ie-browser-hijack-when-searching-w-googlebing/

Issue - when using IE, and conducting a search either in the browser tool bar search or if I go the the specific search engine - when I execute the search I get normal results. When I click on a link, I get redirected to an unwanted search site. If I go back, and re-click - I am brought to the appropriate site. This seems to only happen on page one of the results. This is also random - periodically following these steps, I am not re-directed - but more often than not - the HiJack is taking over.

Running XP SP3
Browser IE8 - started in IE7, upgraded hoping it would fix.

Have run various fix attempts (read linked post/conversation)
Since starting the various fixes - the issue has progressed - the last time I launched Google Chrome, I got another browser (chrome) as well that launched into a poker site? hmmm....
