    Hello.

    I have got one of those annoying search bars at the top of my Internet
    Explorer and I don't know how to get rid of it :( It is a Google one
    and every time I click View then Toolbars and de-select it, it just
    keeps reinstating itself.

    I'd like to keep my starting webpage as Google, but I don't want that
    extra search bar rubbish there. I don't even know how it got there.

    Anyway if you can tell me how to uninstall/destroy it I'd be very
    grateful.

    Thanks

    John

    Try going to add/remove programs ( in My Computer/ Control Panel) and see
    if it is listed there. If not, try a google search for "remove google
    toolbar".
