Hi I have suddenly had a new toolbar appear underneath the normal toolbar, this new one has the name ISEARCH and I don't know where it's come from or whether it's doing anything untoward.
I'm running Windows ME.
I have AVG and Norton Anti Virus running and they haven't picked anything up.
Is it anything that shouldn't be there.
Thanks

It's a hijacker.

When you've uninstalled it, I suggest you instal Spyware Blaster, AdAware and Spybot to prevent a re-ocurrence.

No luck with the uninstall, it wouldn't. Already run Adaware
Tried CWShredder didn't do anything

This is possibly an even more useful tool for checking if your PC has any of this stuff installed, and gives great instructions on how to remove. When I first ran this i was appalled to find four different spyware progs on my system, this trash will slow your PC down, so if you wonder why things are so slugish try this.
