    So i use safari (latest) Flock (latest) and Firefox (latest) on sr mbp leopard with all the latest updates.

    Now when using google on any of these browsers clicking a link will send me to a site called www.copy-book.com/with whatever the search name was after it.
    Now when i look up www.copy-book.com itself in the browser it opens google. Has any one had this problem and how the hell do you make it go away as it means i have to copy and paste all my links into the address bar when using google.

    It seems your ISP had it's DNS servers hijacked (or cache poisoned?) and all the traffic directed to google is going to that site.

    Try to bypass the routine DNS servers your ISP has by entering the following DNS servers on your network preference pane (they belong to OpenDNS, a secure DNS server)

    208.67.222.222
    208.67.220.220


    More detailed instructions here.
