I have IE6 - I used to have 5.5, and uploaded to IE6 with the hopes it would overwrite the unsolicited and offensive item that was inserted into my Tools on the IE toolbar. I have MS windows 97 on an IBM Aptiva PII technology computer.

This offensive link is right after the windows update and before the show related links options in tools on the IE toolbar.

I searched and searched your site, MSN, and keyword search on the internet and have found no similar complaints/fixes for such a problem.

I downloaded spybot, as it was mentioned as resolving a hijacked link, but this did not kill the link.

In the View> toolbars> customize tool process, the link is only removed to the left column, but not removed from the toolbar.

Please help me get rid of this trash. If I must send the name of the offending link, I shall, but it's pornographic nature makes me not want to even list it if it is not necessary to resolve the problem.

Thanks

You should probably go to control panel and then look at add/remove programs.

Look through that list and see if there's anything that doesn't look familiar in there.

If so, just use the add/remove button to get rid of it...

I always use the "repair tool" in add/remove programs. just select IE and click to remove, it will ask you a few choices and one is "repair internet explorer". this has always worked for me and my customers in the past. hope it helps.

Thanks for the responses to my problem. The solution that worked was the use of REGEDIT that was passed to me by DEKE.
Thanks and best to all of you,
