I guess getting your browser hijack is common. Many times when I click a link from google, I get redirected to some other website. This happens a lot and there are many options to fix but I always see that combofix is often the answer. So I guess it's my turn to have someone look over my files and see if I can get this fixed. Here is the report I just got form the program:

ComboFix 10-09-25.07 - default 09/26/2010 16:40:11.1.1 - x86
