When browsing the Unity menu, I get strange entries. Such as if I search "Monitor" for system monitor, I get entries for Camera Monitor and Battery Monitor, things I know are not installed. Is that normal?

Oh , those are some apps that are available to install from the Ubuntu Software Centre =) Everytime you search for apps , it will display the apps you have installed and apps that are available from the software centre . Its a faster way to search for apps from Ubuntu Software Centre =)
