The network wasn't as full of virus as it is now. There's been a concentrated effort to spread virus & spam by dubious sources over the past 12 months (by autogenerated spamming results.) Particularly the past 6 months.
Yep, the file filter helped me with 851.7 ,197.1 ,228.0 so on and so on, but unforunately I've now started getting more and more search results containing nothing but those files. I can't help thinking the largest cause of this problem is the result of LW users that continue to carry these files in their PCs.Go figure.
