Is there a way to verify a website that a search engine returns before going there?

    Hello-

    I am back to using Internet Explore (some people never give up) only whenever I do a search for a site (example, say Lavasoft Homepage) How can I tell if the sites that are returned by a search engine are who they say they are?

    I appreciate the protection provided by:
    - spybots search and destroy provided hosts file
    - JavaCool's SpywareBlaster (kill bits, and often the nifty flash blocker)
    - miscellaneous clever tricks

    However…is there such a thing as a secure site that has verified addresses so that after a search, one could do a comparison of sites returned by a search with list of sites that actually have been verified to be run by such and such organization?

    Or is there a better way? It’s getting so I just don’t want to search for sites because it is too dangerous to click results!

    - Just wondering
