My System


Hello,

Well this one is weird to me. I would have just followed some other posts and tried to remove this but I can't figure out why it is doing this.

I just formatted my PC with a fresh copy of Windows XP Home SP3 last week. I had bought a new Hard Drive so it was necessary. Since then I have hardly done any web browsing. The only web pages I have visited are my usual ones(gmail and a couple forums I frequent). I have not had any signs of any virus.

However seemingly out of the blue my google links keep getting redirected randomly. It doesn't happen all the time, only a few times per day, but it does happen. I cannot figure out where this came from.
Even though I have no virus trouble, should I post a hijack this log?
