i have the issue going around where i type an entry into any search engine and while it's labeled as the correct destination, the ip address is something completely different, like shopzilla.com or bizrate.com, etc.
i've run my spybot and avg and combofix and pc tools spyware doctor, blahblahblah (i've since deleted a few of those programs, i know they can compromise one another and exacerbate the dilemma, so please don't bother to tell me it is that), i've gone through all folders and cleaned all caches, cookies, things of that nature
but i CANNOT find the spyware disrupting my searches
please assist!

i know they can compromise one another and exacerbate the dilemma, so please don't bother to tell me it is that

I won't but it could have.....
You say you ran combofix. This is NOT a tool that should be run without being told to do so as it is for very specific circumstances. Where is the log? If you ran it then in order to know what other steps to tell you to try I need to see the log, since I have no idea what was there BEFORE it was run and without a log I won't know what was there AFTER it was run.
Also TURN OFF Spybot TeaTimer, it will interfere with any fixes done. It isn't needed and shouldn't be running. Did you add all those listings to trusted sites? Where are you located and who is your ISP?

i use combofix at home, am familiar with it, but this is my computer shared at work between myself and a...less technologically-inclined receptionist
the various forums i've been able to get to without the function of a search engine have suggested combo for the same issue, but since it's "assistance" proved a bit too convoluted on a system i have to share, i removed it and all logs pertaining

i just removed the application entirely so as not to fight with it on a computer i am only half-familiar with, sharing it with someone else on the job
so forget combofix
using hjt, are you able to notice anything that i'm not which may be causing this bizarre issue?
thanks for your assistance

No and without knowing what all has been removed I don't know.
Did you add all those trusted sites?
