I seem to have the same problem as many other here.

clicking on search engine results redirects me to other locations.

I ran rkill and Malawarebytes - found some trojans and removed them but problem persists
ran Ad-ware and Spybot - both found and removed things but problem persists.

running windows xp on IBM laptop

thanks in advance for any help
