Well, seems like I am in good company on this thread. I now have 3 laptops connected wirelessly at home that ALL have this problem. I am typing this using one of them! It seems to spread from machine to machine, thereby giving even more joy throughout the house. So, anyway, I digress. I have tried to cheat and read other threads and try things, with no luck. So I am appealing to the experts! I'm using (for typing this) an Inspiron 1100 w/win XP right now and it is badly misbehaving as far as IE redirects to r3.google.com and a lot of other crazy web sites. Help me!!
