My problem is twofold. Whether or not the two problems are related or not I don't know.
The first is that any Google searches I perform are returning normal results, but when I click on the link to a page listed in the search results, I get various types of sites (such as pow1tooo.com, doomkorea.com, revenuelab.com, mosworld.com and big100gun.com to name just a few) rather than the site I want. If I click on the Google cached search result, I usually manage to get the page I wanted, but even this sometimes brings up these annoying search pages. My OS is Windows XP and I have been using mostly Opera 10.10 and occasionally Internet Explorer 8.0.6001.
The other problem I am experiencing is that the computer from time to time shuts down by itself. A dialog box appears headed “System Shutdown” saying “This system is shutting down. Any unsaved changes will be lost. This shutdown was initiated by NT AUTHORITY/SYSTEM” and “Windows must now restart because the DCOM Server Process Launcher service terminated unexpectedly”.
