I have been driven crazy by this search bar that has automatically installed itself on my browser. I run WinXP, with IE6.

Link to an image of it:

Has anyone come across this before, how do you uninstall it, and should i ditch IE altogether?

Have you tried SpyBot? AdAware? Uninstalling it from Add/Remove programs in Control Panel?

> and should i ditch IE altogether?

Yes.

So try SpyBot, and try going to Add/Remove programs.
