I have no idea if this is just a "me" thing, but whenever I type in the wrong domain name, I get taken to a search engine with lots of adverts on it, some from googlesyndication, others from oingo.

If I type in www.force9.co.u it takes me to the search thing, so I dont have a clue why. I've ran adaware which didnt find anything, i searched regedit and found nothing. I looked on google and it brought up a lot of results, none were actually relevant though.

So is this just a "my puter is broke" kind of thing or does anyone else have the same sort of thing happening to them?

You have spyware on your computer, you need to run Spybot and this will remove the worst of it.

If after running it, and re-booting, if your still getting the same problems. Then post back, as you may need to run hijack this and remove some problem entries. As sometimes spyware installs a line in the bootup to re-infect the machine.

That worked perfectly, thank you. I had tried Adaware, but that didnt bring any problems up, s&d did the trick, no more weirdness. Smiley
