What information bar?
You might have been hijacked.

Run these online virus scanners:

http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/
http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

Are you using these basic programs?
aČ free
Ad-Aware
Spybot S&D
SpywareBlaster
SpywareGuard

If not, you should really consider it. These programs, updated and
used regularly, will do a lot to keep your computer clean of spyware, trojans,
keyloggers, browser hijackers, etc...

Download them, update them, and then run them.

Please read this tutorial on Spybot S&D before using it. Spybot can do serious damage if not used properly.

If this doesn't help, then:

Download the latest version of HijackThis (HJT), from here.

Put HijackThis in a Permanent folder:
Click My Computer / C: / File / New / Folder / name the folder; HijackThis
Put HijackThis.exe, in this folder.
This is a mandatory step, for the backup and restore functions, of HijackThis, to be able to work.

Read the pinned post in the HJT forum, here
Follow the directions, EXACTLY! This is important!

Then, run a log, and post it in the HJT forum here. Do not fix anything, yet.
A member, of the HJT Team, will help you out.
Please, be patient, these people are volunteers. They will help you out, as soon as possible.

i hvae installed VET antivirus
Spybot S&D
and Adaware 6

this was on my Step dads computer at his BUSINESS. So it is rather urgent but i told him to click on the allow blocked content for all the webpages he needs to visit
i will post a screenshot next time i get onto that computer.

All of the programs were installed after the problem had started and a VET scan showed that it had a Win32Showin virus .. or sumthing like that. it had about 4 different versians of this.
i went to the virus information website and it was just a home page hijacker which i knew was on there. but adaware didnt remove it.

i downloaded hijack this (thankyou!) and wil try it out
thankyou for your help!
do u think repairing or reinstalling internet explorer would work?
