Could anyone advise me on how to remove the hotbar from msn.It is driving me mad placing adware on my computer all the time. Is there anyway to disable it ?

..one might be add/remove programs in your control panel - is it not listed there?

Download MS Anti Spy Ware Beta (how ironic, using MS Anti Spyware to remove its own spyware!). In there you can go Tools, Advanced Tools, System Explorers. You can then go to IE BHOs (browser helper objects). I use google toolbar so it is listed there, your MSN one should be and you can remove it from there.

Have you downloaded Messenger Plus by any chance?

Hi, I have a daughter who uses MSM so it is very likely that she has done this in the past at one time or another.

It is bundled with spyware. I suggest that you run HJT click here and post a log on this specialised forum click here
