You mentioned, "using the search bar from the cnet search", but I don't know what that is.
When I opened your link I got a Google web page listing a load of CNET topics. When I clicked any link I was taken to the page that link referred to. I didn't have to use any CNET search bar. What happens when you try that?
If you think there is some sort of malware, and if this is Windows, (you don't say which Operating System you are using), then I would suggest you download, install, run and update, then perform a full scan with Malwarebytes' Anti-malware.
Hope that helps.
Hello, I'm not sure if this is the right section for this but... google has been acting funny for me lately.
My friend has been on my computer all week and I just came back to the surprise of several very unwelcome toolbars on firefox. Several uninstallations and virus scans later, the only thing that really bugs me now is google screwing up.
What happens is, the initial search works,
(google search "cnet", it takes you to http://www.google.com/#hl=en&source=hp&q=cnet&aq=f&aqi=n1g10&aql=&oq=&gs_rfai=Ca98V6QkvTMPRD6X4MbrIia4KAAAAqgQFT9DyB0w&fp=36ec6be010d257f),
but if you try to search from the page you just got to from the first search, (using the search bar from the cnet search) the only thing that changes is the address, and in order to get to said address, you have to refresh the page.
Also, the name of the page in the tab and the window bar is the page address, not what you searched for.
Sorry if this is hard to understand...
This is really quite bothersome and I would greatly appreciate any help on the subject. My appologies if I posted this in the wrong section. Thanks.
