CES, LAS VEGAS, Nev., January 6, 2005 - Google Inc. (NASDAQ: GOOG)

software from Google and other companies that improves the user
experience online and on the desktop. In just a few clicks, users can
easily discover, install and maintain software to surf the web faster
and safer, communicate better, and effectively manage information.

"We've heard from countless new computer owners that it can take days
or weeks to install all the software they need to make their computer
useful," said Marissa Mayer, VP of search products and user experience
at Google. "We developed Google Pack to give users a way to painlessly
install all the essential software they need - pre-configured in a
sensible way - in a matter of minutes. Better yet, users don't have to
keep track of software updates or new programs - we maintain and
update all the software for them."

Google Pack offers programs that meets Google's high software
standards and are considered best in their class, including:

* Adobe Reader 7
* Ad-Aware SE Personal

Google Pack also includes Google Updater, a new tool that
intelligently downloads, installs and maintains all the software in
the Google Pack. Google Updater alerts users when updates and new
programs become available and ensures each program is always
up-to-date. Google Updater can also be used to monitor the status of
installation, run software that's been installed, or easily uninstall
