Google Search Redirects

  1. Hi,
    I see that there are some other threads on this problem, but I am brand new to any attempt at removing a virus, so I wanted to be incredibly cautious about following directions given to other users. I hope I'm not causing problems by posting a question that has already been asked.

    Essentially, as other people have posted, when I do Google searches, I'm getting directed to a site different from the link. It has been happening for maybe a week or two and is definitely getting worse - this is happening to more and more links each day.

    I followed the advice on another user's post to run Hijack This and create a log, which I've attached.

    As I mentioned, I'm new to this - I have zero experience in this area, so hopefully I'm not too clueless to follow whatever instructions are provided. Any assistance is greatly appreciated!

    Do visit the link in my signature and follow the instructions there. You can post back with the logs when you're done.
