    A friend of mine has an extra bar on his internet explorer - about.co.uk/,
    not sure how he DL it but it seems to be stopping his internet working. Is
    there any known thing with this search bar and is it add/remove progs to
    remove it?
    Thanks

    Not sure why it would stop the internet, but right click any toobar in IE,
    menu will appear, uncheck underired menu. Also go to add / remove in control
    panel to get rid of it [usually where it is].
