Thanks for the information. I have installed AdwCleaner and it appears to work very well, it cleared my problem mentioned above and lots of other items in the registry. However, there seem to be a lot of other programmes which are down loaded at the same time. One if which is picked up by ZoneAlarm as a Virus and it "treated".

Any comments?
