Internet Explorer and Firefox File Extension Problems

When ever I enter a website like espn.com yahoo.com it automatically switches to espn.commando or yahoo.commando every .com website switches to .commando it does not happen with .net websites I did a malwarebyte scan a avg scan came up clean. This is happening in Windows xp
Then I just have to remove the .mando from commando and it is good but I should not have to do this every time it is a very annoying problem

Tried doing a internet search for this problem could not find anything on a issue like this.

Run Hijackthis and post a logfile.

Also scan with hitmanpro

Ivano ViolaSystem AdministratorCommented:
I suggest you download and run Malwarebyes. www.malwarebytes.org (free version).
Remove all infected files (if it finds any). I haven't heard of any virus that does this.

Also check the following file:
The file should only be 1kb in size  (Right click the file and select properties).

Let us know how it goes.

are these auto-complete entries perhaps?  what happens if you type:
into the address bar and hit enter?
(the whole thing, don't shorten it)

if the above works fine, turn off searching from the address bar like this:
tools > internet options > advanced
put a dot at the bottom by "do not search from the address bar"

and in firefox:
file > new tab > about:config
find this line and double click it:
(set it to false)
Do a entire search(hidden+system files) for:

If found check it out at virustotal along with
C:\Program Files\AVG\AVG9\Toolbar\ToolbarBroker.exe

byron your response closet matches a solution to my problem. I noticed a PROGRAM RUNNING AT THE BOTTOM called typing assiant I disabled it and now it is back to normal.  
B HCommented:
oh i see, so typing assistant which probably isn't spyware, has a sort of macro feature built in?  i've used that before, so if i type "maint" as soon as i hit the spacebar it makes it say "maintenance"...  

so when you were typing "com" and hit enter, it auto-corrected you to commando... wow that's great i have to save this one

if you use that program, you should find out if there's a hotkey to turn it on or off, or just make it go away :)
