    I have Windows Me, a few days ago I noticed the Xupiter tool bar popping up. This was annoying but I just kept changing it back. Yesterday I tried to log on to IE 6.0 by double clicking the icon on the desktop. An error screen pops up (i do not know which one, I am at work now, it is my home computer that is a problem). On the error screen it says it will close now and if I continue to have problems, I should try restarting my computer. I then try to close out of error and it closes IE, I can not get on. I have read several messages with similar problems but I am unsure what solution I should use.
    P. S. I can log on to outlook express, so i am planning to forward you brilliant solution to my home address so I can use the highlighted web site in the solution to access the web.

    Thanks so much.

    Hi pennylynn666

    Please Download and install SpyBot,

    http://www.lurkhere.com/~nicefiles/

    click the online tab to search for and download the updates, then shut down and relaunch SpyBot.

    Go to the Settings tab > File Sets, and uncheck 'System Internals' and 'Tracks' .
    These aren't needed for our present purpose, and you can always experiment with them later on.

    Finally, after closing down Internet Explorer, click 'Check for problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds 'Fix selected problems'

    you may have to run spybot more than once to clear everything

    Remove everything pre-ticked in Red

    This is a direct link to spybot
