Seems fishy! Have you scanned your computer for mal-ware or ad-ware??
Also, check if its the same with Safe mode with networking & Post the results please.
But in the meanwhile, check this article I found online - http://www.techyv.com/questions/re-...

Let us know if this fixed the issue or not.

Johnw and FrankieWilson, thank you for your responses. No, I have not installed any sort of Mal-ware product. I did manage, though, to get rid of the cs.infospace nusiance by removing the Yahoo Toolbar. However, my difficulties persist and these I have posted to a new discussion giving more indepth details. The link to that discussion (according to the email I received) is
http://www.computing.net/answers/wi...

I did restart in safe mode with networking enabled, but the problems persisted. I have since changed my browser homepage to AltaVista.com (part of Yahoo, I believe) which will at least provide a list of websites when I enter something in the search box. However, nothing happens when I click on any of those search results. To get around it, I have to copy and paste the URL given in the results into my browser's address box, but that only works if the URL is complete. I'm about ready to deep-six this computer! But, once again, thanks for your responses.
