I too was infected with that virus that redirects the browser to a different site, before it has a chance to go to the correct one. I ran MS safety scan and found some java associated viruses, that safety scan removed. I also removed Java, and got a new edition.
When I try to use In Private Browsing, and click the search, it adds %20 between the words, causing IE to not connect to the web page, I tried typing "Bleeping Computer" in the In Private search box, clicked "search" and it changed to %20Bleeping%20Computer%20. Then got the "IE cannot display the webpage" notification. In the "more information" box, I got "does not appear to be valid address." Well, Do Tell !
I guess one of the "innards" directions was changed, by the virus, or the repair/removal.

Windows 7 Ult.
Malware bytes
These utilities were used , and found zip.
Thanks for your time.
