I think it's spyware but not sure how to remove it. I just restored my sister's laptop to a few days earlier when she got it.

In your browser.........go to View > Toolbars and then untick it and it shall vanish.

I wasnt being smart :?

you posted a question and the answer was clearly specified in detail on the page but you still asked "what do I do once I'm there" to which I replied "read the page"

maybe you shouldnt go installing all sorts on your laptop if you dont understand basic removal instructions :thumbsup:
