Tell your security software to stop (temporarily) trying to protect you
from a tactic often employed by malware.

That could happen if you have a customized version of IE or have something
otherwise protecting the registry from changes. E.g. if the "junk" is
precoded in the registry you have to remove it from there too or it will
just be regenerated--similar to the way the Links subdirectory gets
regenerated even though you delete it.

Uninstall MSN/Bing Toolbar (and Choice Guard) & reboot.
