Can Anyone assist please.
My favorites has had extra entries added that I cannot delete - these are
for Cool Stuff, Travel, Casino etc I assume it is some sort of spyware
adware but none of the programs I use will delete them. The option to delete the
favorites by using the right mouse button is not there for these new
entries. I can delete my original entries. Also when starting up IE a bar
comes down the bottom. Can anyone help?

Also tried adaware.
