Everytime I search something on google, like a recipe or something, and I click on one of the links, it directs me to another search engine such as lycos with the keywords recipe in it. Why is this happening? I'm running Windows XP SP2, and Internet Explorer 6.

I am having the same problem. All virus, spyware, adware and malware scans are negative. When I have clicked on a Google search link I have been re-directed to e-bay, lycos, shipandshop and a variety of shopping related directory sites. I run Win 2000 and explorer 6. It does not do this if I use Mozilla so I tend to think it is Explorer related. Did you resolve or does anyone have an answer?
