    Restart PC after doing so in Safe Mode : Here's How and remove (if still present) :

    C:\Program Files\DelFin\ <- this folder
    C:\Program Files\DownloadWare\<- this folder
    C:\Program Files\MyWebSearch\ <- this folder
    C:\Program Files\Internet Optimizer\ <- this folder
    C:\WINDOWS\alchem.exe <- this file

    Clean temp internet files

    Restart again in normal mode

    Update XP and IE asap via windowsupdate.Com

    Hope this helps

    Cheers,
