    I have 2 unwanted menus displaying when I run Internet Explorer and would like to get rid of them.

    I ran ad-aware (with todays update) first
    Then Spybot which became unresponsive during the destroy phase.

    any help with this would be greatly appreciated

    thanks,

    Gene

    Please send me all these suspicious files to the email in my profile for further analysis. If you dont recognise them as useful, they are probably all bad

    Hi Gavin,

    I used hijak this to remove the files you recommended as well as 2 others refering to WildTangent which is not running on the machine. I then rebooted, re-ran ad-aware and spybot and launched IE.

    One of the unwanted menus was gone, the other still there (I have a printscreen image - search.jpg - but I'm not sure if I'm attaching this correctly).

    http://C:search.jpg

    any suggestions?

    Here's the updated log:
