    ^ this site pops up 9 out of 10 times i search for something. It
    appears on working sites for no reason at all. I go to click the
    Google search result link, and *this* comes up instead! anyone else
    getting this? Sometimes it even sets itself as my homepage!! WHO ARE
    THESE PEOPLE??? Its making me furious! If i were a hacker i would
    totally take down *get-search.cc*!

    ugh. rant over... any imput appreciated!

    It's the new wave of spam, spyware. As if regular spam and popup's weren't
    bad enough they now slip in spyware to change settings, force you to see
    their sites, etc. A while back I had one that replaced my homepage for a
    shitty search engine and it wouldn't let me rename it back to yahoo. For me
    this was the straw that broke the camel's back. I downloaded a program
    called spybot and it cleared up over 300 unwanted thing on my computer that
    I never knew were there. Since then I haven't had any problems.

    I have removed several problems by doing System Restore .Go to the help
    menu and set your computer back a month or so using the left arrow above the
    calendar to set a restore point.
