Wow. Thanks so much. I followed the instructions given and IE now seems to be rid of Mysearchdial. I also found a program named Pokki and uninstalled it as the instructions suggested that anything I did not recognise should go. Time will tell, I suppose, but I have installed Google for my son to use, updated virus protection and given "no unsupervised downloads" to my 12 year old. With Thanks!!!

Pokki is suppose to be a Start Menu program, to "brings back" Windows 7 start menu, or their version of it. Levono now installs it by default, I don't know about other PC manufacturers. So, depending on your computer, there's a chance that it came with Pokki. I prefer Stardock's Start 8 -- about $5. But, although all my children are grown adults, I do think that all children (less than 18), shouldn't have unsupervised Internet access, or to that matter unsupervised computer usage.

I had that problem on my Toshiba Satellite C655D! I hated it to no end! Good luck!

Again, thanks Scotty. I removed the Pokki because it was not listed in the original programs within the system. It populated today 6/8 after computer was returned to factory condition. Internet has info regarding "Pokki virus", so I reacted. The main concern however was the lingering "mysearchdial" component within IE. That seems to have gone after following along with the supplied instructions. The initial influx of unwanted material came as my son sat in his armchair beside me, and downloaded some kid's game from a presumed Pokemon site. He doesn't have carte blanche when using his computer and I didn't think the aforementioned site was a danger. My error. Hotshot, if you still have the problem, use Scotty's link. Looks like a solution.

Thanks! I actually solved the problem a while back before looking at this forum using Hitman Pro. I would've suggested that but Scotty had already posted a working solution. Thank you again, though!
