My dad just downloaded this thing that appeared in Internet Explorer 6. It was in a dialogue box like the ones you get with the "Gator Corporation." He downloaded it and it was supposed to give him better searching capabilities. I'm about to run Adaware, but has anyone else had this appear?

It's probably some mischievous app or a piece of spyware/adware un-install it if it appears in add/remove programs or better still don't install/run it at all unless you know exactly what it is. Run Ad-aware and also download and run Spybot.

Let us know what the program is anyway.

Excite bar?

Commonname?

I can't remember the exact name. It might be excite bar. I'm just running adaware and I've got 22 things identified...5 to do with the registry.

I'll have a look at add/remove programs and send in more when I find out more!

In the add/remove programs area. It was simply called "Websearch"
