Unwanted toolbar in IE6

An unwanted extra toolbar has appeared on my Internet Explorer. It is called MIRAR and hunts for related pages. Since I am on a dial-up connection it is slowing everything up even more. When I try to delete it, it sends me to another page where I must sign up for a "free gift" before going further. Do I have to uninstall IE6 and reinstall?

hi
i have had similar problems.
Have you tryed right-clicking it and it should say disable or delete.
If you did not give permission for the tool bar to be there it is probably spyware do i spyware scan to removeit.
A good spyware scanner is Spybot Search&Destroy.
If you do not have a spyware removal program download spybot s&d from download.com
hope this helps!

Thanks everybody. I have tried right clicking, left clicking, deleting etc,etc, but no joy. I will try your spyware because my a2 spyware hasn't found it.

Thanks Keith S, I downloaded X-Cleaner and no more rogue toolbar. Magic.
