Beware of this Google search!

Funny how those guys at Google operate sometimes. You see, when you search for something, there are the regular results you get, and then there are the sponsored links, that you have to pay for, the ones that show up near the top and to the right. Recently I have been telling people to use Microsoft Security Essentials for anti virus. Now if you go to Microsofts search engine bing.com and do a search for it, you will get the correct listing. Interestingly, if you go to google.com and do the same search, you may notice that the top sponsored link, actually says Microsoft Security Essentials, but the website that it leads to is http://www.pctools.com not Microsoft. I have to wonder in whos’ interest, Google is acting, by taking money from theses guys for an obviously errant result. Looks pretty suspicious to me.
