I need help fixing some problems with ie.

There is a search bar just to the left of my address bar that I cannot figure out how to get rid of.

There are 3 new icons in the button tool bar that I do not know how they got there and I do not want them there but don't know how to get rid of.
One is a smiley face (when I float the mouse over it, it says "smiley central")
One is a picture of a monitor that says "Screensavers"
One is a pointer that says "Cursor Mania"

I also keep getting 2 recurring pop ups.
One is just a blank screen with "sixty six" in the blue title bar.
The other is an advertisement for a gambling site (Luckyseven.com I think)

How do I get rid of these?

You know what u REALLY need is Firefox. Its so much better:

http://www.mozilla.o.../firefox/start/

Best browser and EVEN faster with some configs.


And for spyware and everything like that use Spyware Blaster:

With a half decent internet security/AV software (Norton) you'll be secure, safe, and above all, fast

(IF you have broadband hehe :tazz: )
