How does one get rid of unwanted toolbars? They are not listed in my programs, not in Applications and I'm not certain but I cannot locate such in Task Manager. Thank you

You can use a program called Autoruns.

When in Autoruns, check out the Internet Explorer tab. There you can disable helper objects and toolbars. Please do not uncheck blindly. Some objects can be related to your AV. If you have any questions about an entry feel free to ask in a new topic. You can export the entries by selecting File > Save. In the save dialog, save as type .txt. Again, this would be better suited in a new thread. Feel free to PM me after creating the thread :)

Spybot Search and Destroy works good for this too. It takes awhile though.

I have used Spybot to remove the Babylon toolbar several times, as well as a few others.
There must be a site I visit that keeps bringing it back -

You can also simply open your browser...find the Manage Add-ons option...and disable reflected toolbars in the browser settings.
