Google's search listings, I'm geting 12 listings! questwtg msg:1101505 11:22 pm on Jul 1, 2004 (gmt 0) When I search Googles for some keywords I get 12 listings on the search page, that's below the two adwords listings on top. I have a new Sony Vaio desktop PC with Windows XP. I think my IE has been hijacked or is Sony version of IE adding more listings to my Googles search? Dose anyone Know?

Sounds like Scumware. This thread might help. [ webmasterworld.com] questwtg msg:1101507 10:09 am on Jul 4, 2004 (gmt 0)
Thanks, I think it's spyware too! I scand my computer with Adaware and Bazooka Adware and Spyware Scanner but they didn't help. I'm going to try CWshredder after I download it.
I know it spyware because if I search Google for the same software keywords on my other computer, I get 10 listing not the 12 listings that I get on my infected computer.
Also I did the same software keyword search at Yahoo with my infected computer, and I get the same two top listing at Yahoo search as Google search.
So some one is paying the spyware Co to get their ads in to Google and Yahoo top two listings for some software keywords.
