    are you setting the browser to about:blank?

    If not, I think that cool web search might be causing your problem.

    You could try another browser, but that won't fix your spyware problems if they are already installed. There are numberous threads here on how to scan and remove various adware/spyware from your computer. Check up with a couple of those threads to make sure you are truly clean and then try to reinstall your messenger programs.
    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.
