Whenever try to do a search in Bing a page with "Scour" pop up with the results. It might have being fine if the URL match the name on the page but the URL uses an IP address. I was wondering if anyone could tell me if this is something I should be worried about and offer a way to fix my browser so that I get responses from the site that I request information from.

When I say the age of the program in the link I checking my AVG 2012 virus scanner and saw that a regular schedule scan was never set up. So my system had not being scanned since AVG 2012 was installed. I thought this was something AVG 2012 had missed.. So a kicked off AVG 2012 and it took care of the problem. Come to think of it I still didn't schedule regular scans
