Have you seen Google lately. Just now doing some searches and every search leads to Google warnings about bad ware etc. even links to google's own pages about badware. It's strange. It's not my comp either because i was talking to Skool and she ran into it first!

Google brokenl, fancy that. I wonder how long it will last?

Google is STILL bugged. Even searched for “Google”. very strange…

I dont see anything wrong with it. Searching for “google” and then clicking everything within the first page doesnt turn up any broken results.

I think maybe you're just insane.

yeah, it works again. you missed all the fun.

Well maybe because sites like Google dont stay broken nearly as long as - gee I dont know - Drunkduck. FANCY DAT

Never try searching ‘Google’ into Google, you're just asking for a world of trouble.

It's working now. It was momentary.
I was talking to Skool at the time and she saw it first. But buy the time I thought to post about it, it prolly fixed itself. Was a good 5 minutes or so though.

I just googled Never try searching ‘Google’ into Google, you're just asking for a world of trouble.

It doesn't send me to this thread! D: Just to a bunch of people saying that google is shite.
Oh, how do I edit this again?

I just saw a news article where they said that there was a breakdown at Google. It's unfortunately in a language you lots can't understand but the gist of if was that there was a breakdown caused by human error. Google, cooperation with Stopbadware.org works on notifying it's users of websites that contain harmful content, such as worms, trojans, spyware and similar programs that download themselves into our computers. The previously mentioned company updates this list of harmful sites and during one of those updates, an employee at Google did something that caused the error. It caused the Google to be virtually unusable for 40 minutes.

This is the article I'm quoting but like I said, you won't understand a lick.

Edit. Ah here you go. One that's in english: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/7862840.stm

More Edit. I'm amazed that Yahoo news isn't putting this up as a headline article on their site.
Those were my two cents.

Owch.
Folks and childrens, see what happens when one deletes the program Windows/ the operating system that opens the computer? One can delete/uninstall games, logicials for writing, antivirus and even delete/uninstall the tin, but delete the operating system and you will NEVER open your computer, even if you have good electricty.

You can get your operating system reinstalled without scrapping the whole desktop/computer and buying a new computer. However, it means….$$$$$$$$$.

Reinstalling the operating system isn't hard. As long as you have the disk. And even if you don't, all you need is ANOTHER disk of the same OS but still have your CD key.

And if you can't do that, you can install another OS and your old stuff will still be there…

Just DON'T partition or format the disk when you install them!!!!
