Google Search Results in "Blank Page"

I have no idea why, but a week ago I tried to search for something in Google and instead of showing the results in the same tab (I have Internet Explorer), my browser opens a new tab with the title "blank page" and nothing shows up, even after refreshing or waiting forever. I ran Adaware and my AVG virus scanner, but nothing helps. I cleared my cookies, Temp. Internet files and still nothing. The Google help page directed me to try HJT and here I am. Please help. I realize the problem is semi-trivial, but something isn't right. Thanks.

The results from my HJT scan are attached.
