    Hello,

    Thanks for looking at this thread. My problem is that every time I open IE7, windows wants to install Earthlink toolbar which I no longer have, this also happens when I open the control panel. I have Windows xp ver.5.1.2600 service Pk 2 build 2600. I also am running Windows liveone care and defender. I have manually searched and removed all references to earthlink in the registry, I've also talked with earthlink and they couldn't help. I even went and downloaded the toolbar installed it and removed it but that did not help. When I open IE or control panel I get the window that says, please wait while windows configures Earthlink tool bar, then 2nd window pops up and reads internal error 2718 and a bunch of nums and letters underneath in parenthesis. The machine is a Dell xps 400 with 2.8ghz 512 mem. Thank you for any help in ridding me of this nuisance.
