    How to get rid of this annoying IE toolbar popup?

    I just updated windows and I see it installed this absolutely ridiculous IE search tool box thing. I haven't installed it... but it's so incrediably annoying everytime I boot up it asks me if I want to install it and I don't!

    I don't see where to rid of this thing? Can someone help me. Thanks

    Sounds to me like you picked up a parasite some where.

    Run these; Hijack This is for IE only, Spybot and Ad-aware is for the whole system. Remember to update both AdAware and Spybot before you scan for best results.

    Hijack This:

    No, it's not an parasite at all.

    I'm sure someone knows what I'm talking about. You know how sometimes when you update windows... it just added some new "search tool box" that it wants to install to IE as some additional feature crap which I do not want and it asks me every single time I boot up if I want it.

    How do I get rid of that... there must be some place I can remove that. It's not a parasite/virus at all.

    Thanks yeah that google "uninstall isearch" says how. I'll try it later.

    Damn I cannot stand when stuff like this happens it's so darned annoying like I didn't already have enough to do now I have to fight with some ridiculous junk that was installed when I updated windows.

    I bet it's going to do this often when I update windows... it always installs that ridiculous IE search thing... why the hell can't they make it so that I can simply click a button on that thing to make it go away permanently.
