Intranet opens up searchportal.information.com

(OP)
Small office domain has an library intranet website.  Two computers on network show information.com when they try to open library.  I have scanned both, done the HJT, combofix and nothing.  We use OpenDns so I bypassed that by giving it a static dns server address.  I have flushed dns and run a scan and it will work for about an hour and then when they try to open it again redirects back to information.com.  Doesn't matter if I log in with normal user or admin.  All other computers on network are able to open up library website without problems.  Help!!  

RE: Intranet opens up searchportal.information.com

Can they still access the intranet site by typing it in after this occurs? What is the homepage set to? Are they using a proxy? What browser & version?

(OP)
No they cant connect to it after it occurs.  No proxy is used.  Tried it both on ie6 and firefox, same results.

It sounds like a variant of the smitfraud.A quick google search on remove searchportal yields quite a few links to removal.
