I've tried hard at removing an ad/link/search bar from IE
and suceeded in making it no longer appear, however there are still suspicious happenings

HiJack This detected this:
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = http://www.yjztpxlyg.../So1lL81eq.html

(delete it and it reappears)

which looks like it belongs to the same parasite,
and Spybot detects a change in registry setting a new random URL every few seconds (maybe a 30s interval?) which i continually deny which prevents the bar from reappearing (this is very annoying in itself)

Search & Destroy didn't remove it, niether did Adaware, Spyware Doctor didn't find it either

There are also two IEXPLORE.EXE processes running in taskmanager even when IE isn't open, end one process and it reappears again (is this normal?)

any ideas as to what is causing this?

We need a closer look at what's happening.
Please download Hijack this
Copy it into its own folder, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log, do Ctrl-A to Select All, and copy its contents here. Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, don't fix anything yet.
Be wary of strong drink. It may make you shoot at tax collectors, and miss!
