After a download (don't remember which) Internet Explorer now has another startup page when opening. My default is a blank page but this download even went as far as installing a shortcut on the desktop as well as one on the Taskbar (bottom right).

I have removed the relevant html file from windows/system but the application can not be removed as it is always active.
The shortcut was called SWCaller and I have removed it from the desktop but am unable to remove it from the Taskbar

Can someone help me fix this problem?

Search for a programme file called SWcaller2.exe or similar. Rename it.

Search for any files called SWPORTAL*.* and SWCALLER*.* (where * is variable).

Also check the following registry keys for references to the programme. Export the keys before editing any particular references, and ALWAYS ask for advice in the microsoft.public newsgroups if you are unsure:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Runonce

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
