I just (finally) stepped into this millenium and hooked up to the internet at home. Financially i can only do dial up --i am using peoplepc for my isp

Two nights ago, a new tool bar appeared---mirar---I can't close it when I click on toolbars and--the big part-
i can go to my people pc home page but if i search or try to go to yahoo or ANY other page--
the url requested pops up---like a flash- and closes before i can even click on anything.

I don't know if the new toolbar that has glommed on to my computer has anything to do with it or if it's coincidental

any ideas?

Thanks in advance for any help--

As is the case all too often, my idea is that you have malware aboard, jmarie from Colorado
