How do I get Google to stop putting the "Try your search on *other search engine links*" bar at the top of all of my search result pages?>

I use Google as my main search engine. However, they appear to want me to try their competitors. Every time I search, a line of text appears at the top of the page that invites me to:
Try your search on Yahoo, Ask, AllTheWeb, Live, Lycos, Technorati, Wikipedia, Bloglines, Altavista, A9, GoodSearch
The problem is that the bar appears a few seconds after the actual results, pushing them further down the page. If I click too quickly on the first result of the page, I often find that Google has loaded that bar while I was clicking, and it takes me to one of those search engines instead. This annoys me mightily.
There's nothing in my Google preferences about getting rid of this. I've also looked at userscripts.org, and I can't find a fix. Is there any way to solve this problem.
