    Is it the 888 Gambling Toolbar? Try add/remove programs in control panel and I also run adaware with System restore off run a scan in safe mode then restart PC then turn restore back on. Beware tho all restore points will be wiped.

    That toolbar is installed from a gambling site.You might have other spyware as well.

    Go HERE follow the instructions,then post an HJT log.

    You should also use Firefox or Opera as your browser,instead of the spyware prone IE.

    Go to the link Peddant gave you and follow the instructions exactly.

    Post a fresh HJT log as an attachment into this thread, only after doing the above.

    Regards Howard :)
