Me neither. But how can you trust Google, or any other innocent website for that matter, if they send you (unknowingly) to one of these drive-by malware sites. Google HAS to get a handle on this kind of misuse.
We desperately need a www task/police force to put a DEFINITE end to this childish and costly problem.

Well, technically it is not Google who is causing this problem, it is a bunch of clever hackers.
I never use I'm Feeling Lucky anyways, I just hit enter.

As for me, I wouldn't have found 'Geeks to Go' if i wasn't Googling =) .

Google is like a 'telephone directory' or 'yellow pages' book, it gives you a list of phone numbers, the owner, and some business descriptions but who do you want to call or want to try calling is up to you. It can be a bad guy or a good guy at the other end of the line. It is up to the person's discretion.

As for Google itself, it offers a list of links to the websites picking on the nearest possible match based on the typed words of the user and search criteria if applied. To go or not to go to a particular site, is up to the person's discretion as well.

As for users, they can use services like WOT (Web of Trust)to give them a visual idea about the site that they wish to browse or they can use Google's own diagnostic site query, http://www.google.co...iagnostic?site=, write the domain name of the site you want to know about after the equal (=) sign.

As for me, i'll just hit the enter key, click on a link and let my antivirus and other anti-malware tools do its job :) .
