    Why am I asked to sign in when doing a search when I'm already signed in?
    The prompt wants to install software on my computer.
    What gives?

    Your rig has probably been compromised by a rogue browser "toolbar" extension.

    Domain Name: LOGINNOW.NET
    Registry Domain ID: 2173766613_DOMAIN_NET-VRSN
    Registrar WHOIS Server: whois.internet.bs
    Registrar URL: http://www.internetbs.net
    Registrant Street: Ocean Centre, Montagu Foreshore, East Bay Street
    Registrant City: Nassau
    Registrant State/Province: New Providence
    Registrant Postal Code:
    Registrant Country: BS

    "Tool" indeed. And the irony of the Bahamas country code of "BS" is too rich. :rflmao:

    You can try and remove it from either your OS control panel or your browser's extension library. If it's really pesky give Malwarebytes a run.

    I was going to mention that also. I visited that site in a protected browser instance and noticed it wanted me to download and install their toolbar. (Maybe we should call them "Foolbars"? :D ) My main concern is what data that toolbar is collecting. Like many, they claim to provide a benefit to the user, while hiding their true intentions in the fine print.

    Going directly to the site, it's optional to install the toolbar. But they try to make it attractive to get people to get the install link, by offering convenience (with a hidden payload of course). Most of the Internet users out there never read the fine print.

    Nope, I find nothing like that. This is the only site where it happens.

    I just tried a Search and I did NOT encounter the login issue.

    All is good now. :)
