Every time start IE a toolbar at the bottom of my screen appears. Any ideas how to remove it. Tried system restore but for some reason this not working. Running windows XP Pro. Also Ad-Aware, AVG and Zone Alarm. No luck with these either. I've tried to put their address into Restricted Zones but this doesn't work either.
The offending web site address is click here. Can someone please help me get rid of this as its driving me nuts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.
Thanks

Control Panel/ Add or remove programs,? it may not be called search the web. Look carefully at things you are not sure of.

As rawprawn says, try to remove it from Add or Remove Programs. It will leave a whole load of junk behind, however. click here and scroll half way down the page to the Manual Removal section.

Alternatively, download the free trial of SpySweeper from click here Update the definitions before scanning with it.

Also look in msconfig to stop it loading as a short term solution
