You will need a few programs designed to get rid of such unwanted software. Use google to search for "spybot - search and destroy" and 'Hijack this'. The first is easy and will walk you through. The second will list all of the processes associated with Internet explorer and allow you to delete them, you will need to identify the processes related to the killsearch bar and remove them. Also there is a program called CWShredder, also a good program for removing browser hijacks.

I have been using SpyBot Search & Destroy for over a year and it is fantastic freeware.

I would say CW sgredder will help.

You could also download a TINY program called IESPYAD that adds known offenders to your blocked certificates list in IE so that you don't get it again.
