Just a couple days ago I noticed that I now have this Compliance1776 Toolbar when ever I open Internet Explorer.
I have updated and ran a full scan with avast and Malwarebyts, they say the system is clean.
I checked in Add/Remove programs and it is not there.

What should I do next, or is this really something to worry about.
As far as I can tell nothing strange is going on with the PC as a whole.
I can disable it till I start IE again.

Thanks,
Tim

Check for it under Add/Remove Programs in Windows XP, and Programs and Features in Vista or 7.

I did another check and although "Compliance1776 Toolbar" is no where to be found, I did find and entry called "Coupons.com".
So I clicked on it, and sure enough, that is where the toolbar was hidding.

Strange....
