Unknown VISTA IE Add-on called RESEARCH

    Question

  • For VISTA Ultimate, I have an Internet Explorer add-on, browser extension named RESEARCH.  It does not have a publisher listed.

     

    It wont delete so I've disabled it.

     

    Anyone know what is this animal's function and source ?   Also, how to remove it if needed.

     

    Thanks.

  • I second that request, Interner explorer was crashing left, right, and centre, until I disabled this add-on.  now everything seems peaceful again.  Perhaps it was researching how angry it could make the user...

     

    Using (as much as it's possible) Vista Ultimate as well.

     

    Cheers

  • I was just looking at "RESEARCH". It bothers me when there is not a lot of information given with a file or application. It appears to have come from Microsoft, However it I can't get to the file where it is located or installed I will not use it if I can't control it.

    There are a list of numbers that remind me of registry settings, Even if I could get to it with some control through the reg edit I might think about using it.
