have anyone heard of this thing?
cause i dont.. but somehow its installed on my computer

the Readme file says the following:

<< GoogleToolbarNotifier is a companion to the Google Toolbar. This
executable is necessary to enable the Search Settings Notifier feature
of the Toolbar. This feature lets you keep Google as your default
search engine and prevents this setting (and others as we add new
features) from being changed without your consent.

To enable or disable this feature, please click the "Settings" button on
your Toolbar and choose "Options." In the "More" section, check or
un-check the box next to "Set and keep Search settings to Google."
As long as this feature remains enabled, GoogleToolbarNotifier.exe
will run silently in the background. >>

I would like to get rid of the 'notifier' as it starts up at start up in the msconfig. It does go away until I reboot and then back it comes with a green tick. I could remove it from registry but don't know how? Any ideas

that thing is disgusting. They are slow sly in installing it. If you aren't careful when installing a google product you can miss it, and end up with it on your system.
