You guys have helped me in the past. I have another problem. A friend has asked me to clean his Dell OptiPlex GX620 of Infections. It runs XP 32 bit and Internet Explorer 8. The first thing I noticed was there were no Toolbars Showing. There is the yellow star for Favorites but clicking it does nothing. I installed Malwarebytes, and it found and quarantined several pup's such as Babylon Toolbars  and Yontoo Packerage. I also ran ADW Cleaner and that also found infections and were cleaned. The problem with the missing Toolbars still remain. The only bar is the Address pane. I have installed Firefox and Chrome and they both work well but he prefers Internet Explorer. I tried System Restore, as he said the toolbars were there recently and it only works in Safe Mode. Still no Toolbars. I uninstalled Internet Explorer 8. I noticed Its not meant for 32 bit pc's unfortunately IE 6 Still had the same problem. I installed Microsoft Fix It 50157 and it will not  initialize. All Microsoft updates have been installed since I have had the PC in the last couple of days. Thanks for any help
