    Hello!

    Actually, I was having MAJOR issues today, resulting from "search_glow".
    I did some searching and found that it is directly related to the Microsoft Live Toolbar.

    As soon as I removed the MS Live Toolbar, the problem went away COMPLETELY.

    I've seen other posts linking it to MSN, etc., but this worked for me --- again, perfectly!

    Good Luck!
