Recently I got some strange problem with redirection to the sites from Yahoo search results and it would be really nice to know about the ways of its decision.
I have IE7 internet browser and Win XP Media Center Edition with installed Update Rollup on my PC. So my problem is the next: after getting search results with Yahoo I click on any, but instead of opening the desirable web page my browser is trying to go by some strange URL like this -> http://rds.yahoo.com/_ylt=A0geu9TzTLRIb5QA...thingweird.com/ (this one is for site http://www.somethingweird.com/) and giving me the traditional IE message - "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage". Everything is gonna be okie and required site is opened just after I click refresh on this dummy page.
It seems I have no any kind of spyware or worms on my PC, at least I don't see them among my active processes or in startup list.
Some time ago, when I have had Media Center installed too, I already experienced this trouble, but found no way to resolve it. I never saw smth like this during the usage of Win XP Pro with the same software installed.
This bug is annoying one, and I will be actually grateful for any useful advices!
