If your browser is being highjack, use Spybot to identify the offender(s) and 
remove.   Obtain the free Spybot here: http://spybot.eon.net.au/

    Wish it were that simple, but it isn't.  For example, I click on google, 
from my Favorites, and it takes me to google.  Then one day I click on the same 
link and it might take me to yahoo, or amazon, or evolt, or any other web site 
I may have visited in the last 3-6 months. 
    It doesn't matter if I type in the address, or if I click on a link in a 
page, or if I link to it from my Favorites.   
    That's what makes it so wierd!  I can see the address I told it to go to in 
the address bar, but at the bottom left, in the status bar, I can watch that it 
is trying to take me elsewhere.  If I simply hit Refresh repeatedly it will 
eventually take me to the correct URL.
