    OK, you got me there. I've always booted into linux and
deleted files from there, sometimes restoring my erunt registry backup
from a dosbox "box". I thought that my XP-Bart would execute those
autorun files when it mounted the drives. Does Bart ignore autorun
files ?
    TIA

Bart doesn't have windows explorer running, so yes; the autorun and
other things like.. device manager (hehehe) aren't available. <G>

Well...

Just humour me for a moment..

I'd like you to open IE and check the connection settings. Under LAN, and
let me know if it's got some proxy settings enabled by any chance. If it
does, uncheck them and select automatically detect settings, close IE and
re-open it.

Please report back.

That was one of the first things I checked.  It is set to Automatically
Detect.

By the way, my wife says the search results are still redirecting.
Obviously it isn't clean yet.  I guess I must start over.  Please
suggest how to begin.

    OK ...
    In this order:
    you still have that linux bootdisk ?
1)    Boot linux, examine the hostfile, and see if any of the old
entries have re-appeared. Save the file to USB, then delete it.
2)    Plug in all your USB drives, one by one, and look for an
autorun.inf file on all of them. Look in the root of all your drives too.
C:, D:, etc.
    WRITE DOWN the file the autorun.inf points to, and if you can
connect to the net, upload the file it points to to
    http://virusscan.jotti.org/en and/or
    http://www.virustotal.com and
    (this will help others)
    http://www.uploadmalware.com/index.php
(you can see what file it points to by opening the autorun.inf in a text
editor, like gedit, kedit )
    If you have an autorun.inf on the USB, do not plug it into any
other computer until you have saved a zipped copy and deleted the
original. Also save a zipped copy of the file it points to , and delete
the original.
3) No autorun.inf ? OK, so it's probably a "run" instruction in the
registry. Or a browser add-on, or a shell.
    Your antivirus and antimalware are probably false, downloaded
from a bogus redirection.

    Download http://www.avira.com/en/support-download-avira-antivir -
rescue-system
    on ANOTHER computer, burn it to a cdrom on the other PC, boot
with it and run the program.
4) Still no joy ?
    Back up all your data(should have done that first) and
reinstall ...... sorry, all I can think of ATM
