The title pretty much says it all. Upon clicking on a search result I am directed to some other page.
I have run HiJackThis.

Which browser are you using?

Have you tried a different browser to see if the problem persists?

As far as I can tell FireFox 3.6.18 only. I tested IE8 & Opera also with no redirect.

Hey CT - The following entry in the HijackThis logfile should definitely be fixed by HijackThis:

R0 - HKLMSoftwareMicrosoftInternet ExplorerSearch,SearchAssistant = http://search.babylon.com/?bab.....ss&q={searchTerms}&mntrId=58ea1e87000000000000000c41b58535&tlver=1.4.19.19&affID=17158

Other than that, I can't see anything of any real significance.

What other scans have you run??

In addition to Jim's note -- what addons /extensions do you have installed in Firefox?

These two are also troubling from your report:

O9 - Extra button: Window Shopper - {A69A551A-1AAE-4B67-8C2E-52F8B8A19504} - C:Program FilesSuperfishWindow ShopperSuperfishIEAddon.dll
O24 - Desktop Component 0: (no name) - http://www.stripemania.com/ima.....spacer.gif

Window Shopper ([url:2yzjfbez]http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=1979591&f=38[/url:2yzjfbez]) looks like it is the culprit -- but I'd check the rest too.

Stripemania looks innocuous, but I don't know anything about it.
