    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: http://forums.cnet.com/5208-7813_102-0.html?forumID=32&threadID=202124&messageID=2219266.

    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.
