    Hi,

    I don't know where it came from but when I rebooted my computer after
    work today there was 2 additions to the right side of my taskbar.

    One was a blank space with the words "Search the Web" in it and to its
    right was a button with the word "Search" .......

    When I right clicked on the blank space there were the following
    choices:

    Blazefind
    Google
    Yahoo
    MSN

    Blazefind (whatever that is) had a check mark to the left of the word.

    This thing is taking up a good part of my task bar and I want it gone,
    gone, gone...............

    Help!!!!
