NO, Google! I don't want to click again. I wanted to search for winlognet.exe.

A result of Google's automatic respelling feature. They assume a misspelling if the word is not common or if unheard of. That drives me nuts too at times.

No, I really want to search for what I typed.

Then, of course, there are the times when I've mistyped and that feature is quite handy.

I understand what you're saying, but instead of this:

Showing results for winlogon.exe. Search instead for winlognet.exe.

I'd like to see rather this:
