Sorry for the delay in replying, my phone, and therefore ADSL, connection went out for a couple of days.
My comment was partly to clarify that I was cautious about advising you to re-install a toolbar that may or may not be causing you a problem.
To fulfil its purpose, such a toolbar must at least report your qualifying on-line activities to the provider. Whenever we use such a facility, we take it on trust that the information gleaned will not be used for any other purpose without our consent, and neither will any more information than we have given our consent for be gathered.
and when you signed up, you should have been presented with an agreement regarding what you were agreeing to in order to use the facility.
At this stage, it's difficult to say what would be the cause if the re-installed search bar showed the same error. If it was just a quirk of the first installation, the re-installed toolbar might work normally.
