OK, it’s not my title bar. My girlfriend’s computer is used by a few other people who love installing software at random. Recently, it had become so hosed that we restored from a backup.
But apparently the backup wasn’t old enough, because there’s still some goofy little ad all over her Internet Explorer. Whenever she opens it, a little airplane flies out from the right side of the title bar, pulling an ad like “Webmasters! Click here to earn big $$$!”
It only affects IE, and as far as I can tell, it isn’t a running background process. Nothing looks fishy in the ctrl-alt-del list or in the Run keys in the registry.
Has anyone heard of this? Where did it come from, and more importantly, how can we get rid of it?
