London Tube - Map. Unwanted toolbar addon. How deleted?

by jcord51 / January 10, 2010 3:32 AM PST

An unwanted and unasked for toolbar addon as above has appeared on my I E version 8. No idea where it came from and it appears to be malware as the poorly represented map has the typical inset trying to get me to click on it. Does anyone know how to delete it as I've been unable to trace the program on my laptop. Thanks.

Open IE > Tools > Manage Addons. That disables it. Then it should be listed under Add/Remove programs, go there to uninstall it.

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
