File sharing icon in Favourites

  Al94 21:02 05 Feb 2005

I seem to have attracted something unwanted - not serious but irritating coz I can't get rid of it. A File Sharing folder has appeared in my favourites in IE which if opened has links to Music File Sharing and Learn to Get into Porn Free! I have deleted it bit keeps reappearing. I have also noted that tonight for example there is a story on a BBC news article about a sexual assault - the "sex" in the word sexual has been transformed into a hyperlink to this http:// click here. com/cgi/v30//ezlclk.fcgi? (spaces added in the hope the link will show)

I have run Adaware, Spybot, A2 and AVG7 but it still keeps reappearing. Any suggestions?

Sorry the link didn't show but basically it is a hotsearchbar type link

And - I don't know what you folks see, but the same thing has happened to the same word in my posting above, the first three letters of the same word show as a hyperlink which I wouldn't advise clicking on!

Sorted by looking on IE , manage add ons, and disabling a couple of dodgy looking non verified items.
