    I have been using Lion for several weeks. It has worked flawlessly on my early 2008 macbook pro 2.5mhz. However, in the last couple of days when I swipe to Dashboard, Dashboard opens and then jumps to a Safari page attempting to open I have gone to and selected opt out. I have emptied my cashes, deleted all cookies and searched for hours trying to find anything on the computer that is causing this all to no avail. Is this malware? How do I get rid of it? I can't even use Dashboard anymore. Help!

    Dashboard auto opens Safari

    I have experienced a similar problem with my Macbook Pro. Processor is an Intel dual core 3.06 GHz. After installing Lion, dashboard began to auto load safari and then dashboard would disappear after 10 seconds or so. I stabilized dashboard by deselecting "Show dashboard as a space" under system preferences, mission control. However, safari continues to open automatically to a google related URL. How can I deactivate the safari auto open function?
