    Sincere apologies if this has been posted before; a search revealed nothing.

    Strange Google street view images

    Some you'll be familiar with; others have been recently updated. They're also looking for new images, from the nascent UK street view.

    Then you clicked on a different link. It's the Times Online, now checked from two different computers on two different networks, connected to two different broadband lines, and I've never had it link to a Spyware site yet.

    Upgrade from Windows 95 and get Internet Explorer 6 with a pop up blocker.

    Theres no spyware removal site on that link, it takes you to "http://technology.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/tech_and_web/article1870949.ece" which is the official UK Times newspaper website :rolleyes:

    I'm using a Macbook with Firefox, thank you very much. The second link works fine, but I clicked on the first link twice and each time, it took me to that same random site, where I had to close my browser to escape. I don't know what quirk caused that, but I thought I'd comment on it.

    Lol! Thank you for the backup - wouldn't like anybody to think I was misleading them! :)

    Jahjah - who knows. At least the second link worked :)
