Google search results now require extra step to get to the page I want
Posted on 2011-10-08
I noticed about two weeks ago that nearly all my google search results were not directly reachable. When I clicked on one of the search results, it brings me to an unrelated advertising page.
Also for Google search results there now is a little tab that appears to the left of main search results. This tab appears if I hover the mouse over the main search result. If I click on the tab I can see the normal page, and this is my work around to going directly to a search result. So I now have to click the tab, and then click the tab-page that comes up...two extra clicks to go where I want!!! Why can't I just click any of the main links that result from a search??? Also it takes two clicks to go back from the Ad-page to my search results, where normally just clicking the back button once does it from a direct link. Finally it doesn't happen to every search...some I can go to directly but since most bring me to a unrelated advertising page, why bother to find out every time? I usually just use the tab's page to go where I want...what a unnecessary pain, 2 extra clicks.
My security s/w shows several filesquarantined about 10 days ago.
All have the reason of a variant of Win32/Kryptik.TGT trojan but I've looked at removal instructions and none of the files are in the registry and doesn't appear to be installed on my system. I am now doing a full scan of hard drive (should have done before posting)
I'm using Firefox 7.0.1 if it matters.
Does anyone know what the IntelTrayTray.dll does? When I reboot the PC it reports this file is not found, (I guess since it was quarantined)....do I need it?
