    I've installed a internet dialer, which my isp gave me.
    After the installation of the software, and advertising bar appeared on my IE, the bar is located below the url bar.
    Please, I would like to know what to do to remove that bar forever!
    Thanks!

    Hi Nando,

    Go to start/run, and type Regedit.

    Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar
    Highlight 'Toolbar'

    In the right pane you'll find a number of values (entries), of which one ought to be your new toolbar.
    Ohers will be the Address bar, the Links bar, etcetera.

    Rightclick the first one, and choose 'rename'.

    Let's say it's called
    {2318C2B1-4965-11d4-9B18-009027A5CD4F}
    Put a little minus (-) sign in front of it, so that it looks like this:
    -{2318C2B1-4965-11d4-9B18-009027A5CD4F}

    Start up IE: one toolbar will b missing.
    If you've got the wrong one, remove the minus sign, and the toolbar will be back.

    Eventually you'll find the one you want.

    Good luck,
