TITLES dropped on AdWords right now

I just noticed that the titles are all down for AdWords for all searches I did... hope Google is aware of this.

Seems there is an IE bug that can remove titles just from the adwords... tricky sucker wonder if Google is aware of it?

Internet Security software?

AussieWebmaster, have you recently installed 'Internet Security' software, such as Norton 2004 - or has your existing security software been automatically updated online? (Mine updates ever single day for example, usually while I'm trying to do something else!)

If so, this may be the cause of what you are seeing - and an adjustment of the default settings should allow you to see those titles again.

AussieWebmaster, this is the first I've heard of such a virus - so it's a new one to me. I've just pinged the tech team, and they're not hearing anything about it either.

My best guess is that it may be spyware, specific to your computer. Maybe it's time for a spyware 'search and destroy' mission.

I'll keep my ear to the ground on this end, though. And best of luck getting this resolved.

Sorry to cause a panic it is not so much a virus as a bug... and spyware... but not specific to my system I have had a few other people tell me they have had the same problem.

Hey AussieWebmaster, I hope this issue is resolved for you now. I sort of assume so, since this thread has been quite for several days.

You mentioned a connection to IE in one of your earlier posts. Was it in IE only? Could you post any details on the spyware behind the problems you were having?
