Preventing re-infection is actually the easiest part. Always make good back ups of all your important data using external media first and foremost. This will allow you to re-install should you need to. Then it's just a simple matter of scanning your computer system at least once a week, or more if you can, and remove spyware if you find it.
Always update spyware removal programs with the latest signature files on a regular basis for best results. It's relatively easy to remove spyware and stay on top of the situation. After all, it's your computer and your private data that's at risk, so it surely must be worth the effort!

You have to scan for malware/virus or spyware. You can try to install this software. It's a malware scanner and remover.

If this does not correct it, you can uninstall ask toolbar using this.

Missing tool bar when I uploaded to Explorer 7. I cant click on tools to get it back because I dont have a tool bar to acces


Try to uninstall IE7. Once it's removed, restart your computer then it will revert back to the older version IE6. After that you can opt to install IE7 again or much better a newer version like 8 or 9.

To uninstall IE7, kindly follow these steps:
  1. Close all programs.
  2. Click Start and then click Control Panel.
  3. Click Uninstall a Program under the Programs category
  4. In the Tasks pane, click View installed updates.
  5. In the list of installed updates, double-click Windows Internet Explorer 7. In the Uninstall an update dialog box, click Yes.

    Note If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type the password, or click Continue.
  6. Follow the instructions to uninstall Internet Explorer 7.
  7. When the uninstall program is finished, restart your computer.
  8. After you restart your computer, open Internet Explorer. Click Help>About Internet Explorer and check if it's on version 6. If it is then proceed with upgrading to a higher version again.


    Hope this helps.
