I have a very weird issue but it only seems to affect other browsers except for Chrome. In IE I go to Google and do a search for "alliant capital" and the results are correct to direct to the site www.alliantcapital.com but when you click on the listed result it tales you to google Brazil. Has anyone seen this? If it was dns then the issue would be accross the board. Any insight would be great

It appears to be a problem at Google.  You should report this to Google.  However, there appears to be a problem submitting suspicious links to Google at the moment...

Yes there is something strange going on there.  The link to Alliant on the Google page is actually
http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&frm=1&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&sqi=2&ved=0CC0QFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.alliantcapital.com%2F&ei=fSLDUbr_GOiKiAK2uYC4CQ&usg=AFQjCNHp7NsAxjG54Smx6B4fbD5MkZn_Gw&sig2=FUMLZVCcXGzA06agWn1K4Q&bvm=bv.48175248,d.cGE
It wants to load Java.  I did not go any further.

If you put alliantcapital.com in the Address bar and click Enter, you will get to the proper site immediately.

Yes, and I just tried Bing and it is doing the same thing. I obviously cannot control the search engines. I just checked my DNS and all the records and I have verified that they are correct. If it were a DNS issue, typing the domain in the address bar would not work.

It works properly in Chrome but the other browsers just seem to get a redirect.

I have never seen such behavior.

Two experts said that there are problems with the link.  I do not see that j556x45 obtained any solution "on my own".

No, the issue was not the link. The website itself had an object redirect that was responsible for all the redirects. This was identified as malicious code inserted in a "jpeg" and a php file in the root of the structure. This was very innocuous and has probably been in the structure for months and was not detected.
