    I have a problem while using GOOGLE...
    No, no, no , this is not another thread to fight upon the best search engine....
    I had no probs using GOOGLE till last week, but for a few days, if I search and then click on the links, I don't get into the target page displayed. But some kind of spam site opens few times!!!

    When I googled 'winxp startup tweaks', I got many links and one of them is shown below...
    -----------------
    3DSpotlight | Tweaking your system startup/booting
    Unfortunately not every Application that is to be initiated at Startup gets displayed ... WinXP only: BootVis utility, Miscellaneous - All OSes tweaking ...
    www.techspot.com/tweaks/startup/ - 58k - Cached - Similar pages
    -----------------
    When I clicked the heading, the page that opened showed the URL
    http://www.image-management.org.uk/

    So, where's the problem??? and what's the solution???
    Did anyone of you face a similar prob???

    Looks like some spyware trouble to me, not a google issue. Scan and check please.

    your sys is definitely infected. Run an updated spybot scan and the trouble should be taken out.

    YES! YES!
    Thanks, I doubted if it w'd be spyware...
    And now I've scanned and found it for sure...
    Thanks for the response
