I had a look into this a few weeks ago, and it appears to be IE8 related 
and concerns the google.com search page with the live search results and 
preview - although I never got to the bottom of exactly how the mechanism 
is supposed to work and then fails. (somehow a mismatch between google 
toolbar and MSIE8???)

I guessed at that time that google had invented some specific way of 
getting webmasters to put some code into their pages so as to get 
preferential "preview" treatment, e.g.:

<[defanged] html>
<head>

<title>rogers and browne url(res: C: Program Files Google Google Toolbar 
Component GoogleToolbarDynamic_mui_en_E11712C84EA7E12B.dll 
findy_buttons.png)</title>

<meta name="keywords" content="rogers and browne url(res: C: Program Files 
Google Google Toolbar Component 
GoogleToolbarDynamic_mui_en_E11712C84EA7E12B.dll findy_buttons.png)">
<meta name="description" content="rogers and browne url(res: C: Program 
Files Google Google Toolbar Component 
GoogleToolbarDynamic_mui_en_E11712C84EA7E12B.dll findy_buttons.png)">
