I have been having trouble with my searches;both google and yahoo, being re-directed to different sites. Most of the time I am sent to a scour.com site, however there have been other sites. I can click back to return to the search results and if I do click the same link again I am usually sent to the correct site. Not all searches are re-directed, it seems quite random.

I am running Windows XP home edition, I have not installed or downloaded anything in at least a month. Have run Spybot and AVG 9.0 with no results and have also run Malwarebyt's Anti-Malware, again with no infections found.

I would appreciate any ideas or help on how to find and remove what ever it is I have on my computer.

Try this:

The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

—George Bernard Shaw
