I have an annoying problem. when I search a topic on google.com, i get a lst of results, like always. BUT RECENTLY... when i click on 1 of the results, the next page looks like it's searching for that link, but it just stops ... goes blank(white), it shows "Done" on the bottom left (like it always did when a page WAS there), and it seems to revert to google.com in the top address bar.

I've cleared cache & cookies several times with no luck.

I'm using IE8 & windows XP.

I've since loaded Chrome browser & it seems to work OK with that ... I know IE8 is old but I prefer it.

Anyone know anything about this? Is it a malware problem? if so, is there a fix?

oh ... I'm not overly 'tech-savvy' .....thanks!

Have you tried resetting IE to default?
