Default HugeSearch.net

Awhile back I stopped using IE because everytime I'd type in a web address without the prefix of "http://" I would get redirected to a website called www.hugesearch.net

Does anyone know what this could be? I've run AVG freeware virus scan, Ad-Aware and a few other programs. I switched to Opera and more recently Mozilla, but I loved IE.

On top of that, is there any browser that's most secure or recommended?

It was probably some type of adware. I used to love IE, but then i started using Firefox because everyone said it was great. It'll prob be hard to get used to, but when you do you'll fall in love with it.

Why will I fall in love with it? Does it have something IE doesn't?

Isn't Firefox the same as Mozilla? Or are they different?
