Well it seems i've become a victim of some sort of browser hijack. Both IE and FF built-in search boxes seem to have been hijacked. When ever I use either search box the links become hijacked and redirect me to some other site other than the one I want to go to.

I've ran every spyware/adware/malware/virus scanner (except for spybot which wont install because for some reason the site is down...) I can think of and they find NOTHING. I've ran them in safe mode and to no avail.

Has anyone encountered this problem before?

Ah, formatting always works. LOL Now, I just hope I don't make the same mistake this time around and I can actually make this install last a couple of months. Of course, that is providing I don't ruin it on my own first.. haha.
