Each time I access Google various Pdf files start to download
no indication is given as to there content or origin.

None of the files can be opened and I cannot even find where they are stored
on my computer,
the only thing that I can point to is, this problem appears to have occurred after
downloading a map via Google.

In most cases I am unable to access what i have typed into Google until these Pdf files
have completed there download.

I would be most obliged if someone can help me to sort this problem out
prior to doing a system format as a last resort.

Thanking You.

A New Bible Built with Modern Technology

New Testament - Breakthrough Version


The Breakthrough Version achieves a much higher level of accuracy. It is:

  • more literal
  • more precise
  • more contemporary
  • more correct
  • more consistent

This Bible even translates hundreds of forgotten Greek words that no other Bible does.

It is an essential tool for Bible teachers and students, yet it is easy to read, even for newbies.

Hello Harry,
While I haven't come across that problem with Google I have encountered something similar such as a Registry cleaning program that kept on trying to download and install itself after a screen message that it had scanned my PC, (without asking me first by the way!).

I suggest you download and run PestPatrol and/or AdAware to clean out any 'nasty' cookies etc that may be in your system. There are free versions of both programs that I have found quite adequate for the job. You will get these utilities at:
http://www.lavasoft.com/ and http://pestpatrol.com/

God luck,

   The problem that dickiesam is describing is not a problem with cookies but a problem with popups.  There are many free popup blockers out there.  Many of the browser toolbar add-ons come with popup blockers.
   I do not know if that is the same problem that haroldbld is having.  Haroldbld's problems sounds to me that it could be a virus.
