How do I get rid of this menu bar that keeps coming up?

I'm running XP, when I boot up this menu bar keeps appearing that links to this site:

http://www.active-max.com/

I can't find options to remove it, any ideas?

It sounds like some third-party software was installed without your knowledge. Try installing and running Ad-aware or Spybot S&D to see if they can remove it for you.

Thanks Toq! I tried both, Ad-aware was the one that removed it.
