I am unable to do a "system restore" back to any date at all. Am pretty new on the computer and am hoping that you can help. The reason I want to do a system restore is because I cannot find my google toolbar anywhere even though it is showing up as being installed in my computer. (This stupid toolbar that keeps popping up and disappearing is the only toolbar that I have now and I don't know where it came from.) I am using ie7 and windows XP. I have run a scan with Norton Anivirus 2007 and Adaware SE and nothing was found. Thank-you

What happens when you try to do a system restore?

I would recommend a few more scan to check if your system is clean.

If you right click somewhere on the toolbar you should see a number of bars listed and 1 of them is the Google toolbar?

Suggest you uninstall IE7 and read the info in the link below before reinstalling. You can rollback to IE6 by removing IE7 using the Add/ Remove program.

I am not sure when you say "stupid toolbar" what you are identifying. If the toolbar is unknown to you I would suggest using the program in the link below to identify and remove.

I would suggest that you start using Mozilla Firefox. It's faster, more efficient, and more secure than IE. Plus it has many useful extensions that can make it a million times better than IE.

:flowers: Thank-you!!! My first experience with "you guys" has been great!!! :trumpet: I have already learned a few things and I feel that my computer is "safer" and that I am in a bit more control of whats going on. I will be immediately switching to Mozilla Firefox. :thumbsup: Budapest, my first "buddy" :inlove:
