For some odd reason, when ever I use google, all the results are ads.. I looked it up as much I could, and while I found a lot of articled about the problem, I found none for a solution. Could anyone here shed some light on what the problem may be? I am using firefox3 on Win XP.

When you open Google, check the top left.
Make sure "Web" is selected, and not "Shopping"

I agree. They are called category searching. Just check your category.

The descriptions are the same but the links are different.

And I've also noticed that if I'm signed into my google account, then I get the normal results. If I'm not signed in, then I get the results with the links to the ads.
