A slight variation on the theme: What if Google returns nothin? WTF | :WTF:

My Better Half needed a recipe for cookies she wanted to make for Thanksgiving. So she Googled "cookies". And you probably guessed it: Google returns a ton of sites, many of them dealing with browser cookies. She clicked on one and you probably guessed it again: She landed on a malicious site that did something to break Google. Whatever she Googled after that, Google returned zero - nada - nothing.

I'm the family IT guy, so she: "Google is broken! Please come fix it! Mad | :mad: "

A virus scan returned nothing so I took the easy way out: I returned her systems drive to a Macrium image that I fortunately took a week or so ago. Then Google worked 100%

So she did it again. (My stupid fault: I did not explain to her what happened. Blush | :O ) She Googled cookies again, landed on the same site with the same result!

Once again I re-imaged her machine and this time told her: "Don't Google "cookies", Google "vanilla cookies" or "sugar cookies" ". And that cured the problem. Good ole Macrium!
