I have picked up a toolbar on my Internet Explorer that I am not able to remove. I believe it may be a virus or something. Please help me out!

I have Windows XP with McAfee VirusScan 2005 Version 9.0. It is a toolbar located directly below the Internet Explorer toolbar. It has six options on the bar and at the beginning it has a remove toolbar place but when you hit it it takes you to a website, usually something with a find.exe or something similar.

Hi can you do a hijack this log and repost it back here under a new heading, Hijack This Log some will then come along and look at it but yes it looks like your antivirus has let one through.
