    about a third of the time i click on a link brought up in a google search it forwards me to another random link, usually another search engine but also had bbc & ebay come up too

    first thing i did :|

    it could end up being any of the random software i've got on here tho

    i jus wanted to check whether it was a general problem ppl have been experiencing with the site or whether its my comp, looks like the latter

    I've always had random adware that redirects me to random shizzle based on searches, maybe you have some sort of toolbar installed, yahoo, google etc
