    I have Windows XP Home with Explorer V7. When I do a search and get a listing of possible sites that meet my criteria, and then click on one of them, Explorer does NOT take me to the site I selected but other sites, i.e. I did a search for alternatives to Motrin and got a hit to a site that listed
    www.amitymama.com/vb/archive/t-258764.html.

    But when I click on the link - explorer took me to:

    http://search.lycos.com/index.php?src=MA&query=alternatives+to+Motrin

    I run spy sweeper, adware and Norton every night and everything looks clean. What could be causing this problem?
    Thanks
