My system is Window XP service pack 2, IE version 7
Only happened in internet explorer of any version.
After search engine (Yahoo, Google etc) displays search results, by clicking on any result link for the 1st time, i will be directed to some other search engines instead of the actual website i intended to visit.
I realize when i initially click any of the search result link, the status bar of the internet explorer first display the actual address of the search result link, subsequently pause for a while and redirect me to another "fake" search engine website. But when i click back button to go back to the valid search engine result page, another window of title "click2find" will pop up. When i click on the same search result link the 2nd time, i have no problem accessing the website i want.
There are numerous "fake" search engine websites whenever i got redirected..
I have tried many solutions (scanning with various antivirus s/w in safe mode, checking Hijackthis etc) but none is working. Also tried downgraded from IE 7 to IE 6 and back to IE 7.
Please see more details in the attachments.
