Meebo & TumTiki icons show in bottom IE bar; how to remove?

These icons show in the bottom IE email bar (just before the bottom tray). Used "find files" for anything with "Meebo" in it, deleted all those files. The Meebo icon still shows up. The Tumtiki icon also shows up. Also went in internet tools under security and added meebo.com and tumtiki.com to blocked sites list...

How much of this crap is malware or trojan?

I don't think they are too serious, more of a nuisance and at least one of them might give you unwanted adverts. They both appear in Google.

Try the simple things first:
If they appear in Control Panel > Add-Remove, uninstall them from there.

Also look in IE > Tools > Manage add-ons. Set to show all add-ons (dropdown near the bottom). If either or both appear there, uninstall them - or at least disable them.

We can take it from there if necessary.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
