    Use a spyware program to find it and delete it. It won't be on your add/remove programs list, because it is not a program that you installed. Sounds more like a virus/spyware to me. Track it down with your antivirus software and kill it.

    Check for spyware. Run both Ad-aware (http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaw... and Skybot (http://www.safer-networking.org/)... to remove any spyware. Run both as one may caught something the other missing. Then go to microsoft.com and download Defender to protect against future infections.

    Install the following anti-spyware programs. They are free, and they don't have conflicts with each other.

    Spybot: Search & Destroy

    Ad-Aware

    SpywareBlaster

    Windows Defender

    Please install them all and run them. Just google/yahoo for them, and you should be able to download them.

    Go to www.download.com and download AdAware and Spybot. Run those and those may take care of the issue. Also, run your virus software if you have it. If you don't, you should really think about getting some. There are some free ones that can be run online like this one http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
