Check the following items in HijackThis.
Close all windows except HijackThis and click Fix checked:

O2 - BHO: ohb - {4D568F0F-8AC9-40AB-88B7-415134C78777} - C:\WINDOWS.000\SYSTEM\WINB2S32.DLL

Then reboot.

Did that solve it?

metallica;

that appears to have done it!!! the B2S tool bar is gone. And my system already runs faster on the web. thumbsup.gif

I'm convinced that was also the source of spurrious web sites popping open at inopportune times.

Thank you. You are truly a wonder.
