    Can anyone give me a clue as to how to get my browser back to normal? I used to have the "File, View, Edit..." options, a back/forward arrow, address bar, etc. Now something has changed it so I have something called Zwinky at the top left and a "My Web Search" textbox and I cannot move anything on the one row bar that is at the top of my IE browser. I don't know what Zwinky is but it is not listed (by that name) in Control Panel under Add/Delete programs. Please help!!

    Try hitting "ALT" when in IE to see the FILE/MENU options.

    My websearch is a form of spyware that is rather harmless however very annoying.

    I recommend downloading Spybot , installing it, updating it, then running a full scan and removing what it finds.

    Spybot is a very good free anti-spyware program. It should remove those toolbars.
