    And I'm on FEDORA!!!!

    It's making my laptop shut off randomly, making me go to random websites like ww w.|.co m, ww w.AST.co m, and now, ww w.***ing.co m

    That's what it showed in the bar exactly. without the spaces.

    Any good virus programs?

    Theoretically it should be very hard for viruses to work on linux. Got a few questions for you:

    1) Running latest Fedora?
    2) Are you running as an administrator?
    3) Tried creating another user account and seeing if it affects that?

    1) Yes
    2) Yes
    3) I would, but my HD is very small, like 4 GB. Asus EEE PC 900.
