Also, have you flushed out your DNS cache yet?

DNS Resolver Cache - Flush and Reset in Windows

When you use TW's DNS provider, whenever you search for an unknown term, a TW page will come up. Sounds as if that may be the case, and changing your DNS provider like A Guy said will change that.

Layback Bear:
I used it. I forgot to add it when I was enumerating the scans.
ThrashZone:
I followed the suggestions in the tut. show all addons shows no more providers just bing.
A Guy:
You are correct the problem is on Time Warners end of it. The link you posted describes the problem to a tee. I did the services.msc it worked but it was not the problem. My hardware and software is in good shape. I have made three calls to the help line for them. The first call was dropped after I was on hold for some time. The second call was the one on which I was having a problem with the tech's heavy accent and neither of us was talking about the same thing. That is where I asked for some to contact me and they agreed and I hung up. I have had no call back except for a recording wanting to grade my experience. I stuck it to them there. The third call the guy could speak english but I don't think he had any computer savvy. He was trying to get me to uninstall a toolbar. I never mentioned a tool bar. While I was jacking him up, he either hung up or the call dropped again.
In the mean time I have found a work around. First I call up Bing's search page and the I begin the search. No more searching from the address bar.
