>place to look. Scan for a virus (worm). What program is it?
The program that teases me is from Lop.com. A small accessory toolbar appears in the upper corner of my desktop which is a small search engine window.
In the meantime, I got the idea to look on the Lop.com website and indeed: they offer an uninstall program which can be downloaded! So, I think I can solve my problem (not yet done).
While trying to solve my problem, I have found a very nice tool which might also be a nice tip for others to know. It is "Startup Control Panel", which is an applet that allows you to easily configure which programs run when your computer starts. See: http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml
