I have NEVER loaded Hotbar on my computer! Never ever. It keeps popping up...... Now it is not listed in the add/remove programs, however, it ends up back in the registry. The reason I know that this is happening, is every other day, my system slows down. I run all of my spyware programs. The list is as follows: Spysweeper Adaware Pro Spybot S&D Microsoft Anti-spyware Every time I find it, it is in the registry. So I know the program doesnt exist, as there is no program file on any of the drives, which gives the indication that this is a browser redirect. This also answers the degradation in performance of the browser itself over a high speed connection. So the question is, what can I do to permanently remove it, or is there a program that specifically scans the registry for problems?
