    I did not find Montiera in Programs and Functions within the Control Panel. Next, I went to restore IE Default settings. What occurred next was an MS invitation to Install IE 10. OK, we'll see what happens. It's installed. So far, I'm not getting the Script Errors that I think are created by the Montiera Toolbar buried in the previous IE9. Typing an email reply, my cursor is jumping around. If it persists, I'll have to research the Internet to explore the cause of that.
