I've read quite a lot about privacy, thank you. There are well documented and serious issues regarding privacy at Google. They're great compared to some other companies who have suffered serious data breaches -- Yahoo, LinkedIn, the list is really endless -- and I do have faith that our data is safe from that mode of attack. Unless an internal employee goes rogue, our search data will remain safe from external threat.
The answer for me is a resoundingly definitive NO! And I don't want to. I am deeply hooked into the Google ecosystem from Chrome OS and Android to Chromecast and a huge collection of their services. And I must admit I thoroughly enjoy having access to and using them even with the knowledge that Google uses them to collect a lot of data about me. That said, I feel that Google really does do a good job of letting me know when and how it is collecting my data as well as how they use it. Do I trust them 100%? No. There are certain things that I do take precautions to protect, be it encrypting certain documents I store in the cloud, using a vpn and incognito mode when appropriate, as well as using services, apps, and backups from other providers. In the end though, when all is said and done, I cannot think of one single thing that Google has done to harm me in any tangible way.
"Political targeting" is the biggie. Because if their enslavement-apparatus is actually used for this nefarious end, how can any potential revolution be organised when no-one has privacy any more? Never going to happen? Think about it: why wouldn't 'they' enslave us, if they can stop you revolting, through knowing your every move before you do, due to years of spying on you? Unprecedented in human history, is this level of power. Think!
Downloaded “Search Here” Redirect Virus somehow when trying to download something for mine-craft now I can’t get rid of it and the windows security kit has been of no help. The virus is still fresh it hasn’t been on for more than an hour. What should I do first? It seems many people got the “Search Here” virus when you download some programs, which were bundled with “Search Here” page. Then they will try to remove “Search Here”, a browser hijacker that they think is causing numerous problems in windows. Lately the victims have been getting recurring messages that data manager and RunDLL32.exe have stopped working and they think this may be connected (although it might also be simply a botched installation of an Adobe update). How to get rid of the virus? The manual removal guide is below.
The thing is not using Google search doesn't mean your privacy is take back, it just means now you have given it to some other search engine. Really, even if you don't use a search engine you still don't have any privacy. Cameras are everywhere and you buy things in stores, online etc your info is in apps, the government owns you... Everyone owns you to some degree. So you and everyone trying to make Google out as the sore evil above everyone else isn't factual.

Google is everywhere. It gathers information to power its massive advertising arm. Google is tracking you around the internet, building an individual advertising profile to better serve you ads. Some users don’t mind, reasoning that if they’re going to see ads (advertising essentially powers the internet), they might as well see ones relevant to their interests.
Hi BKJ84 and others! I M U S T thank you IMMENSELY for this solution. I worket my butt for a whole night fighting EXACTLY the same crap which invaded both IE9 and FF17. Any possible malware remover I could try did not help., although I did manage prior to it to successfully remove ANY program starting with "SWEETXXX" from my hard disk disk via both W7 remover (control panel) anf the free CCleaner "uninstall".

Absolutely, when you actually look into it Google is the most transparent with our data verses other companies. Other companies uses your data just like Google to know how to better sell you products. With Google at least along with being able to personalize you for relevant ads, they also use the data in ways to make our lives less tedious and even more important they give alot of their services away for free as a result. So yeah I do believe they are sticking by their a motor of " don't be evil". Others are less transparent and they use or data, give us nothing for free and then turn around and sell us things base on our own data. SO with everything considered, Google is perhaps the better one to trust.
But I had missed the key step!! You helped me realizing that I HAD NEGLECTED to also remove the DEFAULT DT SEARCH install from the installed W7 program list. I missed it stupidely enough, andi should have sorted the list of installs by date: it would have popped obvious that this WAS the latest install of this malicious suite, which installed against my will during a legitimate freeware download.

The only difference here is the customer’s shopping experience. At a traditional dealership, the financial conversation is often the last part of your experience. After you've seen a few models, asked a host of car questions, and possibly test driven one, the dealer will help you explore payment options. At a BHPH dealership, the process is usually reversed. The dealer will ask you a series of questions, possibly run a credit report, and invest in understanding your credit history before showing you available cars. Finally, with your monthly payment range and down payment information factored, you will be shown cars that are right for you and your unique financial situation.
