Google Searches Hijacked

When ever I click links in google I end up at advertisement sites instead of the link I clicked. This only happen in IE, firefox works fine. I ran Hijack this and cleaned it up, I also have spybot teatime running with my browser locked down, so I have no idea how it happened, however I can't seem to fix it. I tried hijack this and it did not find anything out of norm. Any other tools that can be recommended?

Hello 141ANG,

You may have a Wareout infection.  Run FixWareout
http://files.filefront.com/Fixwareoutexe/;9892936;/fileinfo.html


Hope this helps!

Try running in safe mode and running the fix both work on vista.

I finaly got Malwarebytes to run, it is at 22 mins so far and has found 1 item so far. Maybe I am getting the wrong ver of fixwareout because when I run it runs, but then it says wrong OS
