First and foremost, let me thank you for your help. Your website provides great service to those that are not as computer literate.

I have a Dell desktop running Windows XP, service pack 3. I also have various spyware removal tools, as well as Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. When I click on a topic after doing a Google search, I am more often than not redirected to another search site. Whatever is doing this is not being picked up by any of the protection software I run.

Here is my HijackThis log:
