In the interests of expediency....I suggest that you do two things:

a. Edit your oriiginal post and remove the HJT log data.

b. Open IE, go to Tools/Manage Add-ons...disable/remove all toolbars. Then try browsing. You can add/enable the toolbars back one at a time, testing IE after each...to see if that is the problem.

FWIW: Browser redirects...are not necessarily an indication of a virus. The website you mentioned has a clean bill of health, http://www.siteadvisor.com/sites/monsterma...ce.com/summary/.

Users who install toolbars don't seem to realize that many of these change default search and other functions routinely...when installed.

So try what I suggested first...if that fails then we will consider the possibility of malware.

It should be noted that our malware forums are somewhat backlogged and overworked due to the volume of users who allow their systems to become infected. Rather than put you in that line, let's try a simple approach first.
