Hello. When I do a search and try to open one of the results with "open in a new window" it does not go to that page at all. For example I do a search for 'Honda', then right-click the result, for the main honda page, to open in a new window... I will get something like bizrate, lycos, ebay, pricequotes but they will be about Honda, like ebay results for 'Honda'.... Something else odd is if I try that same result twice I get the same incorrect page but on the third try I will get the Honda main page.... I made sure and got the latest definitions for spybot, ewido, lavasoft's adaware, and windows defender and ran them a few times. I did find some things and got rid of them but I still keep getting this problem with the search engines. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

Hi jbarlow, first Welcome to Bleeping Computer...
It would seem to me that you've got a genuine Browser Hijack there.
I would recommend you follow these instructions to clean up your PC. HERE
