It seems most of you are not reading or understanding what I said.
Apologies, I failed to mention Google Toolbar and its desktop search function, if this is disabled, the results will not be as per mine.
First, please do a search on the net for "Google Toolbar bad", using various search engines for several pages worth of search each.
Find someone else's computer that has the Google toolbar installed.
Then read the articles that relate to Google Toolbar Bad, not the other bits that are offered.
Right then, now get a memory peg.
Put a couple of text files on it, with your name and some ficticious passwords in the text of that file.
Go to a computer that has Google Toolbar installed.
Put your memory peg in their computer, you will see a little bit of a scan happen, normal for windows, it will then ask if you want to play the movie
files or audio files on the peg, maybe open some doc file if that's all that it on it.
Click cancel, have a look at the peg using explorer.
Yes that's all normal yes?
Remove the memory peg. Put it in your pocket.
Now, bring up a browser window with Google on it.
Do a search for the name that you used in the test text file on your memory peg, and some other text that is on your memory peg.
Which should, bye the way, be sitting in your pocket, not still plugged into the PC.
Now, because the Google Toolbar has also scanned your peg AND remembered ALL the text and other files on it, the results are now in your face.
If you had a text file on that peg with, say "Frederick" somewhere in it, and a string that says, "password ghret574yh".
That will be in your face also, if you searched for "Frederick password".
Where is your data really, in your pocket, why is it on the screen so you or anyone else can see it.
I did have a list of ALL the types of files that Google Toolbar scans and remembers, I'll post it as soon as I find it again.
It all appears as a normal Google search.
The contents found relating to what has ever been found on your computer, whether it is there now or not (It was once, Google saw it),
are listed at the top, internet results are below waht is in your computer.
The information is hosted IN YOUR COMPUTER, NOT ONLINE.
There is much more sad reaearch about this, I will document, but you can find it yourself by researching.
Have a think about varying words from bad to spyware, malware, suspicious. Anything someone might write trying to desribe being upset about it.
How are you all now?
