Yahoo/Google search engines are redirecting me to weird site

Specs: Windows XP, 2.4 Ghz / 2 Gigs
Ok here is what I did and I regret it. I opened an email from a known sender and clicked on a link that I believed to be valid. Now I can't perform any searches on Yahoo or Google without being redirected to unknown sites. I ran A-Watch Event Log and it shows over 50,000..and counting "Registry Modification Detected" notices. I would certainly appreciate any help with removing this virus as I require my computer to work using the search engines very often. Thanks in advance.

Actually I had both you guys and them in my bookmarked pages under Virus Removal. Yes, it happened before..and I'm thankful for sites like this. FYI, they actually didn't respond any sooner, I just found the solution on one of their threads. Thank you for responding though.
