|Zigh is correct, I believe to get rid of it, just uninstall the google toolbar. Since I use google a lot, I find the toolbar very useful. But keep in mind what zigh says about BHOs, and that they are used by spyware and adaware because your firewall doesn't recgonize it as anything other than it being your browser. MyGeekTeam|
