    Google results are all malware sites?

    Just started this morning. No matter what I search for in Google, EVERY result produces the "Warning - visiting this web site may harm your computer!" message.

    Anyone else experiencing this?

    I came here first, not general, and your subject line didn't make it clear that it was about Google (EDIT) [being messed up] in any fashion.

    On Wednesday, January 28th, I arrived at work. After finishing a few jobs that needed done I decided to check the news. As soon as the home page loaded, YAHOO.COM, I observed a popup that said something like this, The site you have tried to visit has tried to install a banned program, please click here to install Virus protector 2009.

    Can't remember the correct message that popped up, but then it popped up a screen that indicated that Windows couldn't load the site.

    Went to try and d/l SpyBot and several other programs suggested and it wouldn't let me do it. So I fired up Foxfire and it was uneffected. Got Spybot installed, and managed to run it and found several unwanted programs, cookies, and other junk that I got rid of.

    As per instructions we run AVG virus protection here as they are too cheep to purchase one. But I'm pretty sure it had been turned off, cause when I started it there wasn't an error message that it was already running.

    I worked on this pc for about 4 hours and got most of the problem fixed and another person worked on it during the day, but anyway we haven't had the problem since.

    Tks
