Definitely malware. I'm removed the virus from 2 friends computers in the last 2 weeks. It's a booger.

I made a real quick VB6 browser for when my other browsers are hacked. It always seems to work. Feel free to download it and use it. It's an .exe, but I assure you it's legit and there's nothing bad in it (I assure this as long as it's coming from my site url). or (if you prefer a zipped file):
Use that to download Ad-Aware.. do the full system deep scan (should take 5 - 8 hours) and you should be fixed. Don't just do the quick scan. That usually does nothing. Good luck.
