    I've tired using Google several times today, and it keeps rerouting me into websited I didn't ask for and aren't looking for.

    Has anyone else noticed this?

    Nope. Used it 6 or 8 times, I'd bet, and no problems.

    Well, thanks. I'm checking for viruses now to make sure I didn't pick something up.

    I know they discontinued images, but it keeps tossing me into a search engine that isn't Google... so I'm not sure what it's doing.

    I thought they were all still in mourning because we slapped down their creepy guy on the White Horse.

    Whoops. Another Mormon Prophecy that didn't happen.

    I would try another computer then run your virus scan. I would be worried about a browser hijack or similar.

    So, what did you find? Was it that pesky virus Mormon.exe?

    That definitely sounds like malware.
    I would also suspect that your virus software may also be compromised, which can happen with a successful virus.
    Myself...I would download and install AVG free virus software and immediately do a full scan in safe mode.

    Working fine for me. I Google "Polesmoking Faggot" and you still pop up top of the list.
