When I search on yahoo or google using IE or Firefox, I keep getting weird results that send me to local.com and a bunch of other advertising sites, instead of the sites I am looking for. Type in Zillow on yahoo search and all of the top results are the same as when I type in ESPN. I think I have a virus, but I cannot use system restore as it keeps telling me that it was unable to restore to a prior point in time. I can use IE if I type in, for example, www.zillow.com, but things are slow.

Hello mdg12345,
