    Cannot find a way to get rid of it. There are no "Toolbar" files or folders in my Applications. What can I do to evict this nuisance that has been haunting me for 3 weeks? Why can't Apple find a cure and update for it?

    I can't locate it just at the moment, but there is a previous thread on this EXACT problem (bottom line, you downloaded something you shouldn't have, but NO it's not a virus -- it's actually Safari's way of telling you that potential adware keeps TRYING to get in there!) and it's solution.

    Do a search for "community toolbar" and you're bound to find the exact post I'm talking about.

    Are you on Lion or Snow Leopard?

    The issue is a file called CTLoader. It would have been installed along with some 3rd party application, like Facebook Reader and others.

    It will be located in your home folder / Library / Input Managers (Input Methods in Lion - I think)

    Trash that file.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    Thanks so much for that. I found it and trasher the folder with 2 itms in it. I hope it stays away. I took a snapshot and left on my desktop just in case it sneaks back in. There should be a law against unwanted invasions like that.
    Thanks again, you're awesome.
