    I don't think the problem is with google. I have no problem searching the term you suggested. Browser hijacked?

    Well,

    Thank you all for your comments. However, no one told me how to get rid of this slimeware.
    Ad-aware cannot find it. Any suggestions?

    Thanks again!

    I've seen the name Spybot come up more and more lately...you may want to give that a shot.

    Dynamoo put some links in this thread: CLICK HERE to Spybot, and a detector at Doxdesk.
