When I was going to search for something on Google a window popped up and asked if I wanted to do a safe search. I agreed and from then on when I went to Google a search called "MyPrivateSearch" came up. There's even a MyPrivateSearch.com. I turned off Safe Search in Google and it appears to be back to normal but I worry that MyPrivateSearch is still lurking back there.
