go to C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files

This is where IE keeps all those dumb ass mini programs it loads such as skins, flash players and yes your toolbar.

Just look for it in their and delete it.

Gone.

Here is a visual of all the objects your browser has installed.

I have a similar issue on my computer, but not as bad it sounds like. I have run ad-ware a few times. It is a separate window that opens up once and awhile, with no specific things that opens it. its a "save now" ad. I run pop-up stopper and it STILL opens. When I run ad-ware it finds 4 things in my registry, I delete them and yet like was stated before they keep comming back. Is this the same thing that is happening to me as well?

Few things you can do....

1. Make sure your ad-aware definitions are up to date.
2. Try downloading and running Spybot Search and Destroy. Spybot sometimes catches things that Ad-Aware misses, and vice-versa.
3. Quit visiting crappy porn sites!

Get a MAC and you won't have to deal with a system that even Bill Gates says is full of holes.

I keep running Ad-Aware and it keeps finding theese dialer programs called "Malware" I am pretty sure, that is the problem, this "Malware" is also behind this "Istbar" thing. I keep Deleting it and clearing all of my temporary internet files and the damn thing keeps comming back
