Searchin in Google or other major engines returns pornographic results

  1. No matter what I search for, in google and yahoo, and some others, I get the same set of sex related results. I did have a virus infection, which I have now fixed, however I believe it left some registry modifications, some of which I have fixed.

    But I have no idea what the problem is with searching, or how to fix it. Altavista is unaffected by it, so it seems to be targeted to certain domains.

    Can anyone offer any suggestions?
