I did a reinstall recently, & had trouble with my Tiscali. I used Freeserve pay as You Go for a matter of minutes.Now, when I try OE I get" provided by Freeserve "at the top of my page, & an unwanted toolbar saying "websearch, wanadoo "etc at the bottom.I am rather petty about these things, & do not like unwanted stuff on my PC. Anyone know how to get rid, & why its there?

Thanks crx1600.I did do a search for these things, but, obviously, wrongly! Now got rid of "provided by", but still stuck with Bar along bottom,saying Web search, "panel", go, all the web or shopping buttons, "wanadoo homepage" then finally an ad, for Argos sale. How did this get here- it wasnt here before- & PLEASE how do I get rid of it? I've run CWS, AdAware, Spybot search & destroy, A2 & AVG. Please help. Cheers, Al.

you could try looking under view\toolbars and see if there is anything to untick that looks related.

other than that, you should start a thread in the helproom, as you may of picked up something less innocent than it seems, they will let you know.

try this click here "Uninstalling the Wanadoo Search Toolbar"

Sorted!! Seems my brain isn't working recently-must run AVG on it!! I thought I had posted this in Helproom,not Consumer watch- what an idiot! Then I cleared the thing from view, layout, info pane,as you said. Many thanks for your help,Cheers from (an embarrasssed)Al.

i mistakenly gave you directions for InternetExplorer, but you adapted it for your OE problem anyway.

you may want to follow the 'click here' to the wanadoo help pages and remove it completely, just in case, or it may reappear later.

im glad it's all sorted, when you here about 'search bars' etc, it usually means the PC is infected with nasties, but fortunately not this time.

all the best.
