    If you enjoy operating a computer that isn't bogged down with viruses or malware, you might not want to Google the name "Lily Collins" anytime soon.

    Google'd, and not even a red WOT icon (which is known to flag everything even remotely believed to be malicious). Sensationalism at its best.

    Maybe she is trying to get more publicity.

    if i remember right, you only can get infected 14% of the time you do that search, which means not all sites pulled up from the search are infected. you need to click on more to get it.

    I wondered that too, apparently she's Phil Collins daughter, but I don't know what she looks like since I didn't search on her name :D

    OK right, didn't realise, so I obviously had to google her image. Didn't get infected though -- which is nice. ;)

    I looked at a few of her images, but have not been infected yet. I need to keep looking I guess.

    It's no wonder why Lily Collins got no 1 there. She acts in one of the latest movies in cinemas. These type of articles tend to get people searching for the celeb info online; more so if they have never heard of her before. Guys can't resist the temptation...law of nature :p

    It's either The English Teacher or The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. Both were released this year.

    Right you are TonyW!
    Truth is before looking it up I would actually have guessed on The English Teacher, wich would have been wrong :)

    I rarely follow celebs and the like, I've got plenty of my own life to entertain me. This sounds like a publicity builder.
