I'm seeing them, but what about this???

* A Google Pack referral is counted when a Windows user from the United States, who has not previously installed any component of Google Pack, downloads and installs the program for the first time.

Does that include adobe reader??

Ahh.. Philipp. this is why you don't see it...

"Google Pack referrals will only be visible to users located in the United States. A Firefox referral button will be displayed to users not located in the US"

Google Pack includes the following.....

   Google Earth
   Google Desktop
   Google Toolbar for Internet Explorer
   Google Pack Screensavor
   Picasa
   Mozilla Firefox with Google Toolbar
   Ad-Aware SE Personal
   Adobe Reader 7.0
   Norton Antivirus Special Edition – 6 month Subscription

So I'm understanding that if a user has any of the above components installed it won't count as a referral??? If it is.. that's dumb... cuz just about everybody has a least one of the above..

I guess more than half of the world's computer(connected to the Internet) has Google Toolbar or Adobe Reader.
