Sometimes when I use Internet Explorer and do a google search it goes into a search of google images instead. This happens perhaps one out of 10 searches.  Any ideas?

PeterMeadow--If you search on a subject that involves images, Google may just switch you over to the Images page.
I could also suggest you run HiJackThis and see what is in the R1 lines.  But if that shows a link to Google Images you should go to Images every search.
