I tried the same steps as 'boopme' posted in his first post in the following thread, but the problem has persisted: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/274425/google-search-results-redirecting-and-also-directrdrcom-pop-ups/
I also created a new System Restore point and deleted all the others.
I figured I should consult before going forward with a HJT.
