Clicking on any link displayed in google results page sends the browser to a nonexistant URL named newserversearch.com or message may be random in the Server not found error box. example but not always the same. sample is ssrheewrveencra.com
A copy to clipboard copies all of the text in the error windows correctly EXCEPT for the domain name. the copy will always be newserversearch.com in place of the displayed domain.
Typed URL goes to correct URL. Clicked links from outlook mail, bookmark, or favorites, etc also go to correct URL.
Run Malwarebytes, and avg, and MS malicious software removal tool. Nothing reported.
The error appears on one computer using either IE6 or Firefox 3.5.2
2nd computer on same router to internet connection has no error.
Registry search and HD search using explorer returns no find match for newserver.
Using Zone Alarm for firewall.
Rootkit revealer returns no flags.
Hijackthis log shows no process running on the infected computer compared to the non infected log. [That I have seen. :-)]
