u got way too much running at Windows startup.

startupCheck your available resources by right-clicking My Computer; clicking Properties; Click the Performance tab. Resources available are displayed as percent there at top. Check it when you get done running the System Configuration Utility mentioned below.

Click the Start button; Run; type 'msconfig', without the quotation marks, in the Run box and click OK; Then click the Startup tab; Uncheck anything you don't need running in the background. For reference on what's not needed running in the background in the System Configuration Utility, view this website first and print out the list:

http://www2.whidbey.net/djdenham/Running_items.htm

It's important that you print out the above mentioned list. The site provides a printer friendly link.

In the System Configuration Utility (SCU), you can uncheck programs you suspect one at a time and restart your computer. If something doesn't work right, you can always go back into the SCU and re-check it and restart your computer via the Start button. The changes are completely reversible by re-checking an item in SCU or by selecting Normal Startup under the General tab in the SCU and all the programs listed run when Windows starts as it was before you started.

You might post exactly what programs you have in the Add/Remove Programs Control Panel list box.

I also had this problem, and could not remove the search bar. I un-installed a lot of unknow applications from my computer, I e-mailed Startium and got no reply, I followed all the instructions in this forum and others, I ran spybot and fixed the recommended lines in hijack this, but the search bar would not go away!! I finally got rid of it though, by "fixing" three lines in hijackthis.

NOTE!!! I'm not sure if bs3.dll needs to be removed, I read on another page that someone was trying to restore it.

In hijackthis, I "fixed" the following:

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {2CF0B992-5EEB-4143-99C0-5297EF71F443} - C:\WINNT\System32\stlbdist.DLL

and

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {A85C4A1B-BD36-44E5-A70F-8EC347D9B24F} - C:\WINNT\bs3.dll

and also the following Toolbar:

O3 - Toolbar: Search - {2CF0B992-5EEB-4143-99C0-5297EF71F444} - C:\WINNT\System32\stlbdist.DLL

I finally got rid of the bar, after three days. I decided to register on this site and post this message in the hope it will help other victims.

Beir Bua! (Irish for "to victory!")
