Hmm, sounds suspicious. Have you logged on with the same profile or a different one? If you use a different one that the one with the links in the favorites folder then they won't be there. Anyways assuming you know that already.
Let us take a closer look at what is running on your PC. We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool (HiJackThis) and post a log back here with the results.

Click the HijackThis Guide in my signature, download it and follow the instructions in the guide.

Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.

I apologize I didn't mean to come off all snappy. Check this out it is a hijack this tutorial. Also if you run a google search on hijack this tutorials you'll probably find alot more.

http://hometown.aol....al/tutorial.htm

Basically we're looking for the registry entries that tell the program/malware/virus to start running and we remove the registry entry and delete the files.

In the meantime while I check your log you can do this to help out.

Please run a free online virus scan here (tick the "Auto Clean" checkbox):
http://housecall.antivirus.com/

And a free trojan scan here:

You may wish to print out a copy of these instructions to follow while you complete this procedure.

Please save Hijack This in a permanent folder (i.e. C:\HJT). This ensures backups are saved and accessible.

Please go offline, close all browsers and any open Windows, making sure that only HijackThis is open. Scan and when it finishes, put an X in the boxes, only next to these following items, then click fix checked.

Please reboot into safe mode - How do I boot into "Safe" mode?.
Be sure you're able to view hidden files, and remove the following files in bold (if found):

C:\WINDOWS\system32\SSMS.EXE
http://www.sophos.co.../w32gismoa.html

C:\WINDOWS\system32\LSSAS.EXE
http://www.trendmicr...OBOT.RL&VSect=T

Those 2 files are virus files, I addes links to each one so you can check on it further. After the online virus scan they might be removed though.

Reboot normally and post new log.

First turn off "System Restore" by right clicking "My Computer" and clicking "Properties". Click the "System Restore" tab (if you don't have this then you must log on with an account that has Adiminstrative priveledges. Check the box next to "turn off system restore" click "OK". Reboot into safe mode once more. Run Hijack this in safe mode and remove the following entries.

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchURL,(Default) = http://red.clientapp...//www.yahoo.com

Find and delete these files in bold (still in safe mode)

C:\WINDOWS\system32\SSMS.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\system32\LSSAS.EXE

Reboot normally and post new log. If these files are now gone then you can enable system restore again.

Usually files in the System32 folder are files your system needs, but viruses and other malware disguise files to look legit (like these 2) so you won't delete them. They are placed in a system folder and sometimes unable to be deleted because of system restore. If you hit ctrl+alt+del and click the processes tab you'll see lsass.exe and smss.exe. These are located in the system32 folder and are legit, but their evil copiers are not. Read the filename carefully when deleting.
