    Internet explorer bar stuck at stop of screen. Won't go away.


    There is a bar going all the way across the top of my screen. It has the basic Internet Explorer icons (forward/back arrows, home icon, a search) and then a bunch of social media icons to the right. I don't want this there and can't find out how to remove it. Can anyone help? NOTE - I'm not talking about the task bar at the bottom of the screen. No amount of right clicking anywhere shows a menu to change this.

    :)

  3. Explorer search is detached, and stays on my desktop. How do I get it off?

    There is a bar that stays on ALL screens, I believe this started with the last update....

    It goes across the screen, has a home/explorer tab/search window/facebook/You Tube/Xbox

    The tabs for my internet windows are below this.

    I REALLY want this bar to go away and can't seem to find a setting for it anywhere?!

    thank you!

    Hi, if you can't see what this is from your task manager, try installing WinSpy++ (free).
    Drag the crosshair over that bar and see if it identifies the process.

    Once done, please advise what it tells you and provide a screenshot of the mysterious bar.

    Thanks

    Hello and welcome,

    It seems you got some Adware in Internet Explorer.

    Please download AdwCleaner and Save it to the Desktop.

    Right click on the program and choose Run as administrator.
    You'll get the Terms of Use for the program, click on I agree.
    Please click the Scan button and be patient, you can open the log after scanning and post it as attachment or clean.

    If you choose clean all active programs will be closed and your computer will be rebooted. After the reboot a logfile will open, please attach the logfile in your next post.

    The logfiles can also be found in C:\AdwCleaner.
    • AdwCleaner[Sx].txt - x is the number of scans you did, please attach the highest number, unless you cleaned.
    • AdwCleaner[Cx].txt - x is the nu mber of cleans you did, please attach the highest number.

    How is your computer doing now?

    That fixed it. Thanks guys!! I guess I should've thought of that. I've been a Mac user for a while now and just got a windows PC with Windows 10 (which I hate) and I honestly thought that was a legitimate Windows search bar. That explains why I couldn't find a setting to disable it.

    Have a great weekend !!

    Hey,

    I think Unchecky (see link in my signature). This will uncheck unwanted stuff for you.

    Happy you're adware free.. yes, Unchecky can help where installers present check boxes for optional 'addons'.
