Yes, I think you're right. It is strange though, as I asked on another forum and a person said they tried searching on Google Images for spyware and the same things I searched for in Firefox 4 and nothing came up for him. It might have been a result of not having Windows Updates up to date at that time or maybe he has prefetch disabled. I will try disabling Prefetch for a while and see what happens.
He also said this:
I had to check in about:config to remember how I have it set. I have network.prefetch-next false and also weboftrust.prefetch is false. Perhaps that is why I don't see the problem you saw. If disabling prefetch helps, then do it. It doesn't seem to hurt Firefox that much. Other than that, I see you are using an earlier version of NOD32 than I, but maybe that doesn't make much difference.
OK, I just changed the setting for network.prefetch-next to "true" and I still don't get any warning from NOD32 when searching for "bitdefender" in a normal Google search. I did the same Google images search for "spyware" and not a peep from NOD32. Maybe an update to the newer version of NOD is in order. Maybe there is something else going on with your system.
