I have this annoying little search bar cowering down in the R corner of my screen. It showed up in January after a Windows Update and subsuquent ("Word Of The Day Calander" paying off.) restart. I have Windows XP with SP2. I am running Norton AV. It has found nothing when I do complete system scans - every week. I have run Addaware and removed the problems it finds. I have gone to the Panda site and run their AV scans.... It found 19 threats and fixed 3. Windows Updates are done every week and installed if any. I have found the isrvs folder hidding in C:\WINDOWS. I can disable it from Task Manager but after a restart it comes back..... It Mocks Me Sooooo!

Any and All help is GREATLY appreciated!!!!

If anyone needs help with this task bar issue - this is the help I received from Microsoft , AKA The Evil Empire, but it worked for me. If you have any questions the staff here is VERY helpful.

Hope all this helps.

Step I. Enter Safe Mode
1. Restart the computer.
2. Keep pressing the F8 key until the Windows Startup menu appears.
3. Choose Safe Mode, and press Enter. (NOTE: In Safe Mode, your system display and Desktop will look and perform differently than in Normal Mode. This is only temporary.)

Step II. Uninstall related search components in Safe Mode
Please uninstall the search components you mentioned in Safe Mode.

Step III. Delete the folder in Safe Mode
1. Click Start->My Computer
2. Click Tools->Folder Options from the menu
3. Switch to the View tab, uncheck the boxes before "Hide extensions for known file types" and "Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)"
4. Choose "Show hidden files and folders" and click OK to confirm.
5. Navigate to C:\Windows
6. Right click to delete C:\WINDOWS\isrvs
7. Restart the computer back to Normal Mode.

Also if you look in Control Panel and then Add/Remove program there was a little installer program called Isearch Firefox Installer. It will unistall until you do a reboot and then it is back. It will go away if you uninstall in safe mode.

Hope this helps !!!!!
