  3. Hi,

    Does the redirect page look something like this?

    http://www.webmasterworld.com/rv4.c...ll/afe?hl=en&s=http://www.webmasterworld.com/

    With new Dell machines every typo in the Address bar, every DNS that does
    not resolve, every domain that doesn't load quickly enough redirects to
    google's sponsored links page, co-branded by dell with dell's product line
    on the top

    Gateway also has a deal with Google for a Branded redirect page that looks
    like this:
    http://www.webmasterworld.com/rv4.c...ay/afe?hl=en&s=http://www.webmasterworld.com/

    To resolve this issue with a Dell machine, go to the Control Panel
    ADD||Remove programs and look for a program called "GoogleAFE" and uninstall
    it.

    If that fails to remove it for any reason, use the Registry Editor and
    remove the following key:

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\AFE]
    "AfeUrl"="http://www.google.com/hws/dell/afe?hl=en&s="

    Good luck,
