    Google Search

    Is Google acting weird for anybody else? It started happening a few days ago for me. Whenever I type something into the search bar it doesn't come back with the main links. It comes back with some weird crap. For instance, when I type in ESPN, my first few links are news articles on ESPN, not the main page. The same thing happens for almost every word/page I search for.

    Anybody else experiencing this?

    Re: Google Search

    I just did it again and it worked.
    It doesn't happen 100% of the time, but at random times when I'm in a hurry and need to search something, it comes up with weird blogs or articles instead.
    And it usually only happens when I type it into my google search bar, beside my address bar at the top of the page, not the main google home page. Maybe that's my problem.

    It might be pulling up stories you've looked at in the past from your history.

    What ISP do you use? It could be a DNS issue.

    Couldn't have been that because it was bringing up NBA articles and I don't even pay attention to the NBA.

    Thank God I wasn't the only one, I thought I was going crazy for a second.

    I have Comcast.

    It's working fine now, its just every now and then it will come up with weird search results.

    Re: Google Search

    You might have the google redirect virus. Its damn near impossible to get rid of. I just use Yahoo search now, but I heard it can do damage

    Re: Google Search

    I had it the same google search redirect problem. Fixed the issue yesterday by updating Malwarebytes, restarting my computer, and then running a full Malwarebytes scan as administrator.
