Hmmm... it may be just me but I have great difficulty in understanding exactly what your problem is. It would help a lot if you structured your sentences into paragraphs complete with proper punctuation.

It appears that you have downloaded an unwanted tool bar and now want to get rid of it, is that correct? What is the name of the toolbar and what is the website that you got it from?

Also, this post is in the wrong forum - it should be in the other one.

I have moved this post to the correct forum now.

From what I understand, the Internet Explorer (with XP SP2) information bar which notifies you of popups and website's trying to automatically download files, is not letting you bypass it's security feature when you click on it?

Have a look at this guide (http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/web/sp2_popupblocker.mspx). Also be very careful with what you are allowing to download automatically off sites. Most are blocked for a good reason.
