    Hi. I was browsing the internet and in one site it had automatically installed its own search engine and some icons on my desktop and i don't know how to uninstall it. 2 issues : (1) I can't restore my PC using system restore, i tried it too from safe mode - what can I do to make this working again? (2) how to remove the NEW search engine? any list from the address bar when searched will go to a dead link page and when i click on the search tool bar, the new search comes out only. How do i uninstall the new search engine?
    Thanks a lot.

    sounds to me you have spyware. download adware or spybot and do the updates on either one of these programs. and run it.

    or you can go to your add/remove programs and see if the names of thse icons are listed in the add/remove.

    i ewould still get these programs. they maybe more than what you think is on your PC.
