Do a System Restore to before you deleted the toolbars, see if that fixes it.
How did you remove the toolsbars? Did you delete them from Add or Remove Programs?
Part of cleaning my system of malware was to clean all restore points except the clean one after getting rid of toolbars. The toolbars deleted from add/remove programs. I could not get my computer to do anything after allowing Plug N' Play to start.
Finally today I managed to get Plug N' Play to stop running after setting it back to disabled and crashing my computer then rebooting.
Without PNP running my services.exe usage went from 99% to 0%. I tried to find out what was running besides Plug N Play. I stopped Apple Mobile Service although I don't believe that had any difference.
What I did note was two items trying to start.
Remote Access Connection Manager was starting
Windows Image Acquisition was starting.
Looking as Services.msc now I noticed that both of those programs are started and not starting.
Should I disable both of them and try starting Plug N' Play again? If that works add one at a time back into service until everything hangs?
