Sometimes when I enter a website in my "address" bar on my IE, either "my websearch" or "my total search" will come up with "sponsored" lstings. Is there a way to disable them?
 What ever my websearch and my total search are, they do not get me where I want to go.

Try running Spybot & adaware.  I think one and or both should get rid of these for you.

First uninstall the applications from add/remove programs then run adaware and spybot. I reccomend installing Adaware first and then spybot. The new Adaware Se runs very quick whereas spybot takes significantly longer.

Once the applications are installed, make sure you run the updates (mainly for spybot as new adaware will tell you to update)

good luck,
