Can you try this?

1- Go search for Google on some other search engine and click the link.
2- Try Google.ca

Do you have some third party tool bar installed?

Could have been a router thing between you and google, not sure about this.

I am glad for you it is fixed now. This kind of "twilight zone experience" can make one shiver sometimes. ;)

Also, check your hosts file - c:\windows\hosts with a text editor. Some scumware will write an entry to it which redirects requests for well-known sites.

I think I read about this exploit here on WebmasterWorld a couple of weeks ago, you might want to try a search for it.

Putting a specific IP address in your hosts file for the Google toolbar queries is one way to reduce "everflux", too. So the hosts file can be used for good or evil.

Here's what mine looks like right now:

127.0.0.1 localhost 
216.239.33.100 toolbarqueries.google.com

If you don't have a hosts file, there is usually an example file there, called "hosts.sam"
