Is anyone else seeing 4 indented search results like

result 1 = foo.com

indented 1 = a.com

indented 2 = b.com

indented 3 = c.com

indented 4 = foo.com/blah.html

normal

" "
" "
etc

Or has something hijacked the search results for Google on my computer.

Not all search terms produce the 4 indented results. I'm using the Google toolbar. Spybot and adaware report no problems.

Hey... GG... Welcome to WebmasterWorld ;) Glad to see you are still with us.

No5needinput - try BHOdemon. Also, make sure your OS is updated, and run a virus scan.

Try CW Shredder. Also, some BHO cleanup too.

Thanks all.

I did a Google search :-) and found it was spyware called mysearch.

Used a program called spy sweeper and it cleared it and other probs that the ones I mentioned above didnt.

Didn't realise the Webmasterworld was running commercial breaks these days.

Let me guess:

"You liked the company so much....you bought it" - no wait think that one has been used before

I thought about wether to list the programs name before posting but as a couple of other members suggested programs which may assist me I decided to post it. The only reason I mentioned the program (I had never heard of it before nor do I have any interest in it.) is because the other 2 well known ones did not detect it and by mentioning the name it may help someone else in the future whos computer maybe infected with that particular spyware.

Simple as that.
