would appreciate some help in dealing with this intermittent malware that affects some websites by appending a url to the links on that website on mouse down event.
same website when accessed using different dns appears to be normal.
cleaning history and temp files temporarily resolves the problem, but it comes back.
DNS behavior appears to be normal as well.
Any ideas?

Is this a site you control or other sites?  Firs check if you yourself have an issue.  For windows use anti malware http://www.microsoft.com/security/pc-security/malware-removal.aspx don't even bother with the quick version, do the long.  

If it is for sure other sites, there is nothing you can do, they have an sql injection somewhere.  Try searching for the site on google and see if they have detected.  You can also check to see if a site is infected by searching on https://www.stopbadware.org

The best thing is to stay away from those sites. If it is your site, you probably have a cms like wordpress.  Try and use an older back up of your database as soon as possible.

thanks for the answer.

its not my site.

I have noticed that changing the DNS resolves the problem, however strange that is, even though the ISP's DNS checks out as clean.

I'm not 100% sure you don't have something on your own system.  Make sure you run the anti malware program from microsoft.  Run the "long" version and not the quick.

Good luck!

If this is an ISP issue then I suggest that you try to install a linux OS in a Virtual machine using something like Oracle virtual box and see if problem exists there.

Did the Microsoft anti malware program do the trick?  Or did you just close out the question?

Well no one answered the question correctly, and no I haven't found the answer myself also, so what? shall I just leave the question open forever? so I cannot ask any more questions? does that make any sense to you?

I have already cancelled my subscription to this place, its worthless.

Tazm, we have made some comments after your latest comment and the only thing you did is awarded points to Scott to just close the question.

If  you don't cooperate with us we will never be able to find out your issue. Have you tried to check another machine in your network?

I would check your windows host file, it might be redirecting your request to something else.

Please download hostsxpert from this link
HostsXpert

Install and run Hostxperts as administrator, then on the left side click restore MS Hosts file then Click on Make read only.

Next download Hijackthis

Install hijackthis and then run then do system scan and save log. please attach it here!

Thanks
