Try www.malwarebytes.org and download the proggie for getting rid of Malware. I would do your Windows updates, and load the new IE while you're at it. At least that's a start.

Is it a search engine hijacked(e.i. searching on google) or a browser hijacked when not using search?

If the problem persists, run Combofix.

Please download ComboFix by sUBs:
(If it doesn't run re-download but rename before saving to your desktop)

You must download it to and run it from your Desktop
Now STOP all your monitoring programs (Antivirus/Antispyware, Guards and Shields) as they could easily interfere with ComboFix.
Double click combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
When finished, it will produce a log. Please save that log and attach it in your next reply by pasting it in the "Code Snippet" or "Attach File" window.
Re-enable all the programs that were disabled during the running of ComboFix..

Note:Do not mouse-click combofix's window while it is running. That may cause it to stall.

CF disconnects your machine from the internet. The connection is automatically restored before CF completes its run. If CF runs into difficulty and terminates prematurely, the connection can be manually restored by restarting your machine.

If needed, here's the Combofix tutorial which includes the installation of the Recovery Console:
Agree, that is another great one as well. Follow the instructions to the letter.
