Sounds like spyware to me. Check out this link. I especially recommend Spybot Search and Destroy. Download and run it, select repair to fix problems found, and then immunize. Restart your computer and see if this pesky search engine is gone. If not, post a reply, and we'll try another option.
I now have two search engines in my toolbar list on ME internet explorer. i have tried to delete them, they keep coming back.

I did have adaware 6 running at the time. It seems everytime the teenagers get on the computer there are new things on it, some of it won't go away. I got the trojan horse virus on the computer because of the teenagers. my anti virus would not quarantine it. I accidently found its hiding spot on my computer and i destoryed it, so far it has not come back. I bought Norton systems works on sunday and did a full check. It came up clean.

I see what you are saying about things spybot find i'm going to look more into spybot to see what you can do to fix these things I have not used spybot so I need to look into it. Where you said you wanted to upgrade to windows Xp I'll do the format and do the clean install I'm sure this will remore all you problems you are having. I'll repost after I look at spybot program .

Your computer should now be spyware free! If you continue experiencing problems Hijack This is a very powerful tool for diagnosing programs loading at startup, but it can be difficult to digest the logs. It's recommended you copy the log and post the results back here for advice.
