Malicious program affecting Internet Explorer.  I can't change sites.  If I change sites, it stays there for 1or 2 seconds, then jumps back to the previous site.  OS is XP SP2.  This happened with IE 6.0.  It is impossible to download any programs because the site jumps back.  I was able to install IE 7.0 because the computer manufacturer's Help Panel worked without me having to access Microsoft's Update site directly.  I have run  Spyware Doctor and it found malicous programs but removing them did not fix the problem.  I have 2 computers so I can download and install programs that do not require the host computer to perform the download.
