Google Search hi-jack

Starting this morning, whenever I search using Google search engine in an IE 7 browser, I get taken to an adverisement hosted by no matter what I click.  This doesn't effect chrome.

So more malware.  It doesn't seem to do anything worse than that so far.  Here's a related post I found about this search engine redirect problem on

Will research and resolve tomorrow.  This is not my primary computer, so it isn't updated with IE8 and obviously isn't very secure because I store everything important elsewhere.

For casual computer users:  Installing Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome and Safari all installed while things are working properly is helpful loaded for times like this.  Most problems do not effect all four browsers and IE and Firefox are more likely to be targeted as they are still more widely used.
