    Please download AdwCleaner.

    • Double click the adwcleaner.exe to run the tool.
    • Click Delete.
    • When the scan is finished, a notepad window will be opened.
    • Please post the contents here in your topic.
    • The logfile will also be saved in C:\AdwCleaner[R1].txt.

    The toolbar seems to be all gone.
    Once again thanks for your expertise. I will try to remember the ADW cleaner. Pop ups and peculiar tool bars are very annoying. Perhaps I will be able, if I get them, to deal with them myself.
