    :( I would appreciate someone helping me with this. I have way too many toolbars/searchbars installed. I don't even know why some of them are there, I don't recall asking for them. How do I get them off. The one installed this morning is a file folder and will not allow me access in order to delete. I need to stop this from happening and get rid of some of the ones I have.

    To get rid of the ones you have, you can download AdAware, Spybot Search and Destroy and then HighJack This! To keep them away you will need a stronger firewall and some discipline on the sights you visit.

    If you post on the Security forum http://forums.techguy.org/f54-s.html you will get additional help.
