    the search window keeps popping up for no apparent reason, without even touching any buttons. I think it may have something to do with adware, i keep removing 16 items with super anti spyware and all will be ok for a while then the same 16 come back and the problems start again i don't think anyone has been on suspicious sites, it sometimes comes back when i haqve only been on well known legit sites without clicking on any adverts, here is the list from anti spyware
