LOP.com spy/adware

I have a spyware/adware problem on my computer.

I belive it is an lop.com variant, but, having followed the advice of several threads, I cannot find any evidence of it.

I have tried Ad-aware, Spybot and Norton antivirus, but they cannot find anything.

The porblem is a toolbar at the bottom of the screen (appears when IE opens). It is blue, with drop-down menus for things like careers, travel, dating etc. and links for casinos etc. There is also a search box.

Does anyone know what this problem is and how to remove it?

right-clicking on the toolbar and then on properties gives the URL as: "click here"

sorry, URL is lop.com/passthrough/newpass2.html

Windows antispyware. This LOP.COM drove me crazy I downloaded the windows antispyware free and run it several times on all users. its a bit of a job to get it out but keep at it.

I have been plagued by this beestie before and the solution was odd, I went to the home site and found instructions there to remove (fully uninstal) it.'will post instructions, if I can find them.

All gone...turned out not to be lop.com spyware, i think.

Used hijackthis, in conjunction with spybot startup list

Apparently it was cftmon.exe (CoolWWWSearch variant?)
