HELP! How do I get rid of this "self loading" macromedia search engine on desktop?

Don't know what loaded itself up, and where it is....

but when I boot up, I have this 'see-through', marcomedia flash 5 ran search engine thing in the upper right of my desktop.

It says: Search Lop.com, and looks like some sort of weird search engine.

I don't know where I got this loaded on my sytem from, and don't know where to look to delete the damn thing!

Any suggestions?

Have you tried msconfig and removing it from starting up?

if it is an icon on the desktop you could always delete it and empty the trash.
