    This is the scenerio with IE8 & Chrome browsers.
    I google a phrase (ex. Windows 7). I get my usual selection of possible links to click on (I select www.microsoft.com/windows 7).
    My browser gets redirected th an obscure search site (ex. http://www.searchfindsite.com) or something unrelated to my query.
    I have used numerous cleaning tools and cannot remove this annoying hijacking.
    Thanks in advance for any help on this.

    If you have not already tried it, try using Malwarebytes.

    You should also consider asking this on a forum such as SpywareInfo or Spyware Warrior. There are experts in malware removal on those forums who can usually help fix this type of problem.
