I'm sure there is a logical non malicious answer , but

by LakesReg / December 13, 2010 8:59 AM PST

ok if I type into my browser the url:
stuffchristianslike. com

I wind up at something completley different webiste
mutton hollow chevys

I know that sometimes there are malicious re-directs, but this doesn't seem that malicious, just weird
Can anyone help me understand why it would take me to a site that seems so far removed from the url name?

Make sure the site is good (you are spelling is right)
And then get a good malware detection software to clean your computer.

... not what you expected.

The URL resolves correctly ... that simply means that Mutton Hollow Chevy's has registered the url "". Either what you were looking for no longer exists, or you have the wrong url.

Perhaps you want 'scl'.NET ... did you try a simple google on the phrase "stuffchristianslike" ? First item I see is for the site "http://stuffchristianslike.NET" ...

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
