To remove follow these step's closely, go to start\find\files or folders type in the box adult-chat click enter key delete all the entry's it finds with adult-chat in it. Next go to start/run type regedit and press enter, go to menu under edit click find in the box type adult-chat and press enter it will bring up only one entry at a time, press delete key then click ok to confirm to go to next entry press F3 and delete do this until you get to the end of the registry. DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING ELSE IN THE REGISTRY other than adult-chat then reboot your computer

Download Ad-aware from click here it's a free program, after download and install. Run the program and it will pick up all the spy-ware on your pc. tick the boxes and remove all, also remove the shortcut from your desktop, by deleting it.
