Feigning normality since 1973
Filed in: Computers.
See if you can spot what's wrong with the following screenshot of Google results:
Yes, that left-hand frame isn't meant to be there. Google displays sponsored results on the right-hand side of the window, not the left! Some cheeky piece of software is stripping off Google's ads and substituting its own!
The computer in question had two suspect programs installed - "SuperiorAds" and "Dcads". After I removed these (using "Add/Remove Programs"), things were back to normal. Oddly enough, Adaware, which hadn't been able to update its definition file before, was suddenly able to once the two bits of software were removed... How strange...
