    You might have installed some new software that has installed this add-on in IE. Open Tools->Manage Add-ons->Enable or Disable Add-ons. You have to find which add-on is causing this. You can disable it directly if you know its name otherwise disable all of them and enable them again but one-by-one and check for the result.

    If you know which new installed software could have caused it, you could probably be able to uninstall the add-on or the complete software from Add/Remove programs to fix the problem.
