I am writing this for my father, he has windows xp home and is running internet explorer with SP2 on it, at any rate he downloaded something and hasnt a clue but a little time later after so-called removing it at Add and Remove Programs and I have checked for this in his start-up and also right clicked on the task bar and checked the properties and can't find this problem, but what it is, is in the task bar (and this will do this every now and then) it will put a deal that says KA dial-up this does not happen when he starts the pc he may be sitting there and all of a sudden it will pop-up. I have tried all I can think of from spyware removal tools like spybot and on and on and its still there, its like the program is removed that started the issue but there is something hiding in a folder or file, I have done a file search for this and also a registry check for this under the name KA dial-up and to of no avail. I found something about the google taskbar and a KA dial-up issue and we searched his registry and removed anything that said google and its still there, I myself don't think its causing any issues it is jsut annoying if you know what I mean. At any rate if you have any tips on where to look for this problem or how to stop it, it would be truly appreciated...
