    I found through Spybot a BHO called BAE.dll. A little searching revealed that it is apparently installed on some Dell computers by Google.
    One hit on the topic here:

    Does anyone have any experience or an opinion on this? My own opinion is that it should never have been installed on my computer. I never downloaded a Google toolbar (or anyone else's for that matter) for general privacy concerns, so I am going to assume that it must have shipped with the hardware.

    Shame on Dell and Google for this one if it's their doing.
