    Hey pal, I had a similar problem - I fixed it by running a repair of XP.

    Have you got an XP Disk?

    That's a remnant of the My Web Search toolbar.
    Check in Add/Remove Programs for any of the following and remove them:
    • My Web Search
    • My Way Speedbar
    • Search Assistant - My Way

    Reboot. If the error still occurs, I'd suggest posting a Hijack This log for one of the malware experts to look over
    Go to Download HiJack This
    • Click the Download HijackThis Installer link.
    • Save HJTInstall.exe to your desktop.
    • Double click on the HJTInstall.exe icon on your desktop.
    • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis
    • Click Install
    • Click the I Accept button on the License Agreement Window
    • The Main Menu window will open
    • Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button.
    • It will scan, save the log in C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis, and then the log will open in Notepad.
    • In Notepad, click on Edit > Select All then click on Edit > Copy to copy the entire log.
    • Paste the log in your next reply.
    • DO NOT have HijackThis fix anything yet. Most of what it finds is required or harmless.
