    somewhere on the course of my travels tonight, www.surferbar.com got set to my home page and changes itself back whenever i alter it, as well it added a bar to my web browser


    i cant find any utilities for getting rid of it, and simply deselecting it does nothing

    has anyone dealt with this annoyance?

    I haven't used any, but I hear Ad-Aware is really good.

    Yeah get Ad Aware. Its free and does a pretty good job. Be sure to update it before you run it. www.lavasoftusa.com
