Hijacked search results in IE 7

  1. Greetings, I hope someone can help me out ..... I have completed the 8-step program, the results are attached.

    When doing a Google or Yahoo! search in IE, the results are hijacked. Cut and pasting the results works fine, it is only when clicked directly from the results.From what I gather it's a pretty common problem.

    Before I did the 8-step, it was also hijacking search results from Firefox but now that seems to be resolved. I don't use Firefox exclusively because my webmail from work does not operate very well in Firefox.

    Any suggestions would be welcomed - Thanks

    Glenn

    I see evidence of a DNS Changer trojan...

    Run the ESET On-Line Scanner and see what it comes up with:
    Eset Scanner

    Have you tried using Google Chrome?

    Thanks for the quick reply ... the ESET scanner log is attached. Since I posted earlier I found that it is also taking some of my Firefox results as well, but it's more hit and miss. I'll wait for your instructons on what to do next.
