Somehow the CA realtime virus protection was off. I re enabled it but when I logged back on I found that instead of google a search item called "fruttisearch " was there. It really has not done anything yet. I have to redirect to get to google but that is all. A message saying thanks for getting this software and asking me to validate it was on google email but I did not validate it because I never asked for that. Does anyone know what this is? I searched here but got no hits. I have Windows xp as an operating system. Any answers would be appreciated.
