Bug using Google

  1. Hi -
    Whenever I use google.com I get this irritating piece of trash on the Google window - see the attached bitmap. Everything works fine, but I'd like to keep it that way and this reminds me constantly that someone's messing with my computer.

    I do use google.com as my homepage. This is Windows 7. I run cleanup software often - malwarebytes, ccleaner, and the Windows disk cleanup utility. All I have in the startup is Avast and Comodo for protection and Microsoft Skydrive and Google Drive.

    Glad to answer questions and try things. Weekends are good for me.

    What browser are you using? Try a different browser. Also check the browser add-on's.

    Hi LookinAround -
    I cannot explain this, but the problem seems to have gone away as soon as I posted the problem on Techspot. I cannot imagine it had anything to do with running Update Checker or Secunia PSI, but I did run those.

    Anyway the problem is gone now in both IE and Mozilla Firefox. Thank you. I'll repost if it returns.
