Help needed with Toolbar (not taskbar)


Some time recently my toolbar was populated by many "programs"? "tasks" that are cluttering things up.

I do not recall installing new software, and my Norton anti-everything is run daily. 

The suspected culprit is a Windows update which I run automatically, and manually once a week.

I don't recall any other software update.




Where does the toolbar enabling software reside? My plan is to eliminate it and create a new toolbar (or the basic 'simple' previous default) I hope it's not in the registry. Is it in one of the &%$#(* Windows "Start" folders? How many "start" folders are there?


I have not had difficulties adding items to the toolbar from the default choices, once the default toolbar is restored. 


I am a new member, and look forward to  learning from others, and also helping when I can.

Thank you all for any help you can provide.
