    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 **!

    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.
