I'm clean, I think?

Recommended Posts

I was reading something in the MyDigitalLife forums and they referred to a OEM query tool for Windows.


I did a Google serch for that and once I clicked on the links in the search results, things went funny. First off, MBAM (I have the paid version) went nuts, blocking a site. Then I noticed that almost every link on the search results page was doing this.


Here is a link to a screenshot of the search results page: http://i61.tinypic.com/2cxglyr.jpg  Only the first 2 links are not blocked by MBAM.


Here is the result when blocked: http://i62.tinypic.com/4sbgp4.jpg  Note the gTLD of topsoftdeal.com that appears in every one of the links on the previous image.


If I go to Google's cached copy, all the pages for the different links look similar to this: http://i57.tinypic.com/2nrk77q.jpg


I ran MBAM scan and flash scan and the only thing that came up was a pup.optional "issue"

D:\Cube_Save\Software\Downloads\Ultimate Boot CD\setup.exe (PUP.Optional.AirInstaller) -> No action taken.

(of course, why these things are flagged is a pet peeve of mine, but let's not get into that now.)


I suspect that what I'm seeing here is just a massive number of bad search results from Google? Nothing more, nothing less?
