I've run Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, SuperAntispyware , AdAware, Windows Defender, Dr. Web Cureit, as well as tried reinstalling Firefox. All the anti-spyware programs came up with a result here or there, and when I "removed" them and rebooted, I still had the same problem. On a hunch, I ran Internet Explorer (which I never use) and had the exact same problem with searches.
UPDATE: After reading how many other people were having the same problem, I also followed Steps 6-9, however after preparing my post with the requested attachments, my browser is not letting me connect and post it. I'm getting a "The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading" error
