Have I missed something?

www.google.co.uk is now some funny website!

Can't seem to do a decent search on it anymore...

Oh no! Someone tell me what's happened?!

it's now like some ISP homepage with loads of links to all sorts of things, such as ebay and games. looks like freeserve homepage used to - or similar.

search engine link just takes you to more links but if you enter a search, it only comes up with half a dozen sponsored links and that's it.

hope this is just some temporary blip.

Your machine has probably been hijacked.

oh i wish. that would mean i could do no work (offically, as opposed to unofficially!)

unfortunately, my google search WAS going to be work-related.

serves me right, i suppose.

no one else has this then?

Looks like a Trojan. I've had that.

As Dom says you've been infected and you will be redirected to this everytime until you clean it.
