I have been experiencing problems with using Google. I keep getting the following message:

[large minus sign on a red circle]

If I click here, I go into a new site called Conduit, which seems to have the same function as Google, and everything works fine then. Any idea what is happening?

Does this help? Apr 7, 2010

It suggests either malware or a toolbar you've installed. And this is assuming you're using Firefox/Mozilla.

TOPIC STARTER
Internet Explorer Apr 7, 2010

In reply to Rick's posting, I inform that I use Internet Explorer and not Mozilla. In addition, this message comes up in about 10% of Google searches. Finally, as I am not a computer expert, could you (or someone else) explain what "malware" is? I have heard of spyware and viruses, but this is something new.

malware Apr 7, 2010

From Wikipedia
Malware, short for malicious software, is software designed to infiltrate a computer system without the owner's informed consent. The expression is a general term used by computer professionals to mean a variety of forms of hostile, intrusive, or annoying software or program code.[1] The term "computer virus" is sometimes used as a catch-all phrase to include all types of malware, including true viruses.
Software is considered malware based on the perceived intent of the creator rather than any particular features. Malware includes computer viruses, worms, trojan horses, spyware, dishonest adware, crimeware, most rootkits, and other malicious and unwanted software. In law, malware is sometimes known as a computer contaminant, for instance in the legal codes of several U. S. states, including California and West Virginia.
