Today, all of a sudden, I started to get bombarded with pop-ups and the ultimate privacy offender added a search toolbar to my explorer toolbars above. I declined to download their uninstaller because I thought that was just an invitation for them to do more damage. I deleted the website address from the registry, but the search toolbar still remains. I also added the website to my internet restricted list. I have not been using my "POW" pop-up blocker because it was interfering with other programs that I run.
Please help.
