Your browser may have been hijacked!!
You might have had the search function in the IE browser hijacked by some bogus adware or spyware. These are often installed by "free" software packages like Grokster or Kazaa. One of the worst is IGetNet which will cause the symptoms you describe when their site is not accessible. I suggest downloading and using Ad-Aware and SpywareBlaster, two freeware programs that eliminate most of these nuisances. You can go to http://www.spywareinfo.com/scanner.php to see if you have any of the worst offenders. Here are download links for the other programs.
