I noticed that, its an evil bugger of a toolbar.
Look in add/remove programs under AOL Toolbar, click remove and voila, its gone!

Sounds to me like spyware - try using Adaware SE rather than Adaware ( which is old and no longer updated ). Also try spybot search and destroy and microsoft antispyware. You might want to check your computer for trojans also, try TDS3 ( comes with trial for 30 days ). Also try NOD32 to check for viruses.

Also after you have done a full scan with microsoft antispyware, in the options is a settings with all your browser tool bars.. you should be able to remove it from there if all else fails.
