    Starting this morning every time I do a search on any search engine, I get a bar on the left hand side of my browser mimicking the respective search engine's look but displaying PPC results from engines like ah-ha etc. I ran Adware 6, 5.0 and Aluria's Spyware and none of them removed it. Anyone have any tips? It's real annoying.

    Thanks!

    Try Spybot S&D at http://security.kolla.de/. Also, Andrew Clover's site at http://www.doxdesk.com/ has a built-in detector which might find it.

    Have you applied the latest updates for Aluria and AdAware?

    Akiva,

    Has someone talked you into a demo of CommonNames, Igetnet or one of the other contextual KW programs? This sounds like the results I saw when I checked out CommonNames. Otherwise you may have gotten a driveby download of one of these when surfing.

    Good luck finding the culprit and removing it!

    Thanks Dynamoo! doxdesk.com detected it and provided removal instructions. It was the SubSearch browser helper object. It was definately a drive-by as up until about 10AM this morning I didn't have any problems. I must've hit a site that installed it.

    What a world!
