I've started getting a Spybot alert everytime I open IE. It says User-specific browser toolbar, value added, ItBarLayout. I don't know what ItBarLayout is, so I always click deny.

It didn't start doing this until after I was disconnected from the Internet and I tried installing one of those free AOL internet disc thingies to see if I could get back on. I uninstalled it.

Nothing else out of the ordinary has happened except that my computer crashed and rebooted without any prompt while I was trying to uninstall the AOL program.

But anywho, I don't know if AOL is related to the ItBarLayout value. What should I do?

Quoting Ramesh, a Micro$oft MVP, "ITBarLayout is the registry value where the IE / Windows Explorer Toolbar positions are saved (as Binary values). You can safely allow your monitoring program to allow IE access or change this value.

Example: When you change the position of your Google Toolbar and dock it next to the Standard Toolbar, the values are stored in ITBarlayout value."

So ITBarlayout was responding to the change made by installing/uninstalling the AOL program.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.
