    I found a snap do search thing in my daughter IE10; placed it in restricted folder in options. Stll try to remember where in Win 8 Manager I listed registry entry to delete the section you showed me, cannot find any references in pc anywhere else though. Now going to check the kids IE10

    I found that folder Xwe, the smartbar is not listed, checked hidden, not listed ??

    Currently doing registry using tool in windows utilities in Win 8 Manager, found 4 entries for keyword 'smartbar' and deleted. Microsoft Malicious software currently scanning too. Kaspersky Root kit scan running automatically now, nothing found.

    Well everything ran, incl Microsoft Malicious - all showing zero results. Went into program data and the infamous premier opinion folder has gone too. So now we wait and see. When I told windows to show all hidden files, that prgramdata section did not show, but when I used Win 8 Manager and then checked it showed up, so looked inside - no folder.

    It was there last night when I posted my comment.

    Really? It was there when I first looked...

    Ok, the Smartbar thing references a folder, which, if not there any more, meant there were reg entries left over. I think we have eradicated the popup server, we'll just have to see. It was a combination of bad programs.
