    Has anyone seen this before?
    In the Add/Remove Programs list on this computer, there is an item named "Secure Browsing." I think it might be related to a bogus spyware toolbar that's been installed into IE6 on this machine. When I click the Remove button, I get a message saying "You may want to reboot your machine prior to removing this. OK/Cancel"
    If I click OK, the machine reboots. Cancel does nothing except close the alert window. After rebooting, the same thing happens when I tru again to uninstall.
    The icon next to the item is the same icon as an installer (Windows Installer, for example).
    Does anyone know what this item is? Or, how to remove it?
    Thanks,
    Alex

    I'm experiencing the same thing. And when I go to delete the temp int. files, I get a BSD. Whether I delete via Tools-Options or manually.
    Any suggestions would be appreciated.
