bashcreative toolbar

I can't seem to get rid of this annoying little blue toolbar. It keeps over-riding my google toolbar. I've tried to delete it, but can't seem to find where it is hiding. I've run SpyBot, SpySweeper, CWShredder, AdAware, Stinger, and everything else I could get my hands on. IT WON'T GO AWAY!!!!
Please help...

Look on the microsoft websites and get help for changing your reg files. I had one of these toolbars kept coming up, and with a bit of help from the microsoft forum I got rid of it using the regedit on XP.
You can also stop it coming up everytime you load your browser by selecting view - toolbars and then taking the tick off the offending toolbar, and hey presto providing you only had one browser open at the time, the next time you star explorer up it shouldn't be there.

1. Why did you open a new thread ? You'd had just reposting in the original and this Forum's software will place it at front. Advantage for you, irritating for others.

2. From all the tried utilities, you forgot to mention the BHODemon.

3. Probable you traveled ? oops ?Googled the Internet from north to south and east to west and didn't find a same story and that's why you came here again. And BTW, probable if BHODemon worked for you, you won't came to post a feedback. And don't shout in the future, it's a song to raise some commiseration here or there or anywhere.

This being said, you still have the option to work with another non - MS browser. However, with your provided story, no one could help you because it's blind aka vaporware info.

Now, let's try this. Open regedit, expand the following path:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Plugins\Extension

Export the subpath by clicking Registry, Export Registry File, type a name. Open that saved reg file and copy and paste in the reply. You'd have the chance in the history to be the first one who's showing a new pest.

Good Luck,
