Has this happened to anyone else? Is there anything illegal about this? Any idea how to uninstall?
How can I tell if I am running with JS enabled?
Do I need to uninstall Explorer to get rid of this?
It's kind of like spending a drunken night in Tijuana and waking up with some strange rash!
You can turn on/off js by going to tools> Internet options> then click on the security tab. Scroll down to the bottom where Scripting is. You can turn things on and off from there.
I'll echo Danecs comments of your situation sounding like some sort of spyware..try using AdAware to scan your system. Download it, install it and run it to see if there are any gremlins running around in your browser.. :)
I'll sticky you the URL..
It definitely wasn't Google. I'm really curious to find out what is doing this though.
When you look at it you can see that it does have the same look and feel as the Google toolbar.
GG, I have never downloaded any file sharing programs and I have added my email address in my profile. I have deleted the Google toolbar hoping that that may get rid of this one too but that didn't work. Any help or comments are appreciated.
Roland, Check your sticky, I have sent you some more information.
SlyGuy, I will do that. Thanks for the help.
Has anyone heard of this? Are there new security concerns with the Google toolbar? Or is this something different and not related?
If you would like to know which crappy engine I am reffering to send me a sticky.
I've downloaded a spyware removal program and had no instances of spyware running at the time. Running Internet Exploder 6 on Windows XP.

I have not downloaded any of the current spyware programs, but I ended up with a couple without knowing it according to some site I went to.
