    This is just a question as I am not too computer minded - running Windows 7 for last year and now I have a small problem. There is this Find bar that comes up and interupts me when I am typing or even when I am trying to fill in forms online.
    Any idea how to get rid of it have tried so many anti virus scans and it is not picking anything up!

    Hello & Welcome to Tech guy Forum.

    Please run this forum's sys info utility & post the results.

    Which browser are you using?
    If IE9, start > programs / all programs > accessories > system tools > IE9 no add ons

    Even if you are not using IE9, please use it, as a test.

    If the find bar to which you refer doesn't appear, read this tutorial, you look for & read others re IE9 & add on management
    Search string used
    tutorial "manage add ons" "internet explorer 9"

    When did the problem begin? Sometimes the exact date is important.

    What changed? A hardware [ printer or other peripheral ] or software install or removal; an update to W7; update to a program [ anti malware or other program ]?

    Create a screen shot, using W7's snipping tool.
    Return here > "go advanced" > manage attachments
    browse; upload; close; submit

    As L o L noted, a screen shot of that to which you refer would be helpful.
