Hello Andy:
Following the instructions located in Step Five: Posting a Hijack This Log, as you recommended, I downloaded HJT and scanned my PC. It was quite easy to recognize in HJT log-file two objects directly related to my annoying malicious “Search Bar”. I fixed them and rebooted my PC in Safe mode, run CCleaner and Ad-Aware after that. It did not find any critical objects. I rebooted the PC in normal mode and I run Ad-aware full scan. The log file was clean again. Now I got rid of this “search bar” and I have already full control on my toolbars without restrictions on adding/removing. I post my HJT log for analysis to provide me with further assistance.

You placed me on the right track and I think my problem has gone away. If you have some other instructions or suggestions, I am open to follow you. Can I delete more items from HJT log?

Thanks a lot for your collaboration!
