    When I try to get to Google I'm being re-directed to a site called SoGoSearch.com. Anyone else having the same problem?

    Nope. My guess is you have some form of spyware/malware on your computer that is hijacking your browser. I suggest that you do a full virus scan and download AdWare or Spybot to search for spyware.

    Interesting. I'm using a Mac so if is spyware or malware it will be a first for me. I had a tech from Comcast out yesterday to replace my cable modem. He also ran some software of a CD he had with him. Wonder if he could have left a little "gift" behind. Or maybe some sort of DNS issue.

    This happened for a ton of people not too long ago. I think it was a DNS issue of some sort...
