Whatever I image search on google, past the first few results, all images are replaced by some car crash photo. Does anyone knows what's up with this? Anyone else experiencing this?

Here's a link to what I'm getting since this morning:
whatisthis.jpg

 

No matter what I search, these images inevitably come up.

Could this be the work of some virus/malware? Any info is appreciated!

 

 

(PS: Im not sure in which category this question would best fit, so I posted here ._. )

it's you. google image search shows up fine for me. malware is a likely cause but it could be other things. first run a full scan with your antivirus then download the free version of malwarebytes

http://www.malwarebytes.org/antimalware/

and run a scan with it. that will hopefully give some indications of what is wrong. if it finds nothing there could still be malware so you will need to ask someone more talented than myself to help you, if it finds something start a thread in "virus, trojan,spyware and malware removal logs" and hopefully someone will be able to help you cure whatever it is. when you scan with malwarebytes i would advise you set it to detect and prompt not to try and disinfect things yet, some viruses can place themselves such that the act of removing them can damage critical system files.


Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.

Hahaha, yeah I found this just after posting here. Glad it's not just me. :P

 

Pretty weird though.

 

Google image is working again, at least for me.
