This problem has just started recently, and has only been happening on certain sites. I have a membership at Hulu.com and a Myspace account, and it has happend on both sites. I can get to the home page for myspace, and when i type in my log in information and hit enter as i normally do, it does not take me to myspace it takes me to a blank google search page like you would go to google.com and search for something. It happened on hulu the other day but i do not remember the circumstances of that incident.

Please let me know if there is anything I can do to fix it. My kids are going to make me crazy if they can't get on their myspace pages!! LOL

Ok, so apparently I don't have a virus. I spoke with our internet provider and I am not the only person having this issue. I suppose
I will wait it out and see what happens. The joy of being overseas and not having a selection for service I suppose.

Thank you for responding to my problem, and if I need help in the future I will be sure to ask again.
