my windows / internet explorer has been hijacked. The address bar has changed and will not allow me to change it back. There is an icon that says remove toolbar, but it links me to a spyware remover website. I want to get my address bar back and remove this new search bar (it has links to gambling websites, adult, insurance etc.)

Please help. Thanks :tazz:
