Maybe he forgot an attachment or a link or something?

Anyway, have you tried Ad-Aware? And it's not in Add/Remove Programs, I take it?

you get this thing called "mysearch bar" if you install Kazaa, I wasn't able to uninstall it, but when I downloaded and installed Diet Kazaa, it got rid of it for me

From the looks of the screenshot and your Hi-Jack this. You got that when you installed MSN Messenger Plus. Am I correct?

If so, they will probably plant a bunch of Icons on your desktop and in yur favorites. I had the same thing. One round of Spybot S&D and a little HiJack This took care of it

Was this tool bar installed on both IE and Netscape?

In IE you can right-click on the tookbar and see if you have a check by onther search bar. You usually need only (Standard buttons, address bar, links as default)

I'll try to find you the registry keys to remove the extra crap that was installed for you...
