Hello ...

I have a WinXP Pro PC. When I boot up a Search Assistant search window appears at the bottom of the screen, in the Win XP bar. I have run Spybot S&D, Adaware, Spysweeper, and Spy Be Gone. None of them help in removing this pest.

In the list of search engines that it claims to connect too, is Blaze Find, which I think is a major spy.

Can someone please help with this?

Thank you in advance,

TBatt
