The google/yahoo redirect thing is the one where you click a search result and get sent off to some unrelated page. This only happens with google and yahoo, of course.
The one that has really got me is the one that keeps the page from loading. the browser says "waiting for www.google-analytics.com..." and never loads. It isn't all sites just some. Example: can go to any Youtube video but not to many of the channels. If I were to type "threadbanger.com" in the address bar, it would navigate there for a split second and then get hijacked to a blank page with the google-analytics.com message. Computing is no fun anymore.
When the search redirect virus showed up, I reformatted the harddrive and started over. It was still present the very first time I logged on to the web. I don't know what to do. It happens in both Firefox and explorer. Help.

Just a note: Analytics problem seems not to occur in Explorer 6.
