    UNWANTED POPUP TOOL BAR (WINDOWS XP HOME EDITION)

    Can someone tell me how I can get rid of a tool bar that keeps poping up above my start button on the desktop. It's called WhenUSearchDesktopToolbar when I go into Task Manager to see what is running. I can't seem to find it in the add/remove software and I want to get rid of it. I don't know how it got on my computer in the first place. Thanks, John

    It is spyware/adware. See KenK's <!post=Anti Adware/Spyware/Hijack,296439>Anti Adware/Spyware/Hijack<!/post> and <!post=Spyware/AdWare/Malware FAQ and Removal Guide,378115>Spyware/AdWare/Malware FAQ and Removal Guide<!/post> for programs you can download (mostly free) and use to get rid of pests like this.
