What about other search engines? Do they work OK?

If not, it could well point to a trojan that basically 'hijacks' your browser (Internet Explorer?) so that whenever you try to perform a search, you get re-directed. Whereto is dependant on many factors.

It has the possibility of doing quite a bit of harm but for the most part it's just really irritating.
