    This shows up when I try to activate my internet options. I seen one solution in the forum that suggested that I look in spy-bot and uncheck IE control but I don't see that on my tool bar.

    HELP PLZ

    Spybot is a freeware program used to remove spyware from your system. It won't appear on Internet Explorer's toolbar but an entry for "Spybot Search & Destroy" should appear on the Start Menu if you downloaded and installed the program.

    If you do have it, open it from the Start Menu, go to the "Immunize" section (listed in the left-hand pane of Spybot) and uncheck the boxes at the bottom of the right-hand pane that refer to Internet Explorer.
