Hi all

Erm ive got a problem, its quite annoying really, when i open IE i get a blue search bar underneath back, home, next etc its called Bend Close everytime i untick it from the drop down list wen u rite click it, it comes bk with every webpage, ive ran Adaware 6 Build 181 with latest updates but it dont get rid of it, ive searched my computer for "bend close" but nothing was found, any ideas how to get rid of it?

Please help

Look at the image cos it mite be called diff things on diff browser to make it harder to remove.

Thanx From Ste_W

Its probably a bho. There are tools out there to let you remove these. worse comes to worse repair windows and this will reinstall IE

Lee, if you repair the windows installation..... you'd almost be better off doing a clean install. All it does is reinstall windows without removing the other files. Doing so also recreates the registry..... but no references to the programs you had installed before the repair install.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
