How to safely remove Starware?

  Sirpad 10:21 09 Dec 2006

There are a number of sites out there that tell you how to remove this annoying toolbar. I'm not even sure how I got it to be honest. I did install and uninstall IE7 and perhaps it hitchhiked a lift there. It appears that simply using add/remove doesn't quite do the job. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks jumv7...I was in that site earlier and it said 'we highly recommend you use a good spyware cleaner/remover to track Starware' and below it has a tool to automatically remove it. Is it not recommending it's OWN remover....a little confused. Did you use their remover tool?

No not used the tool, I just googled for 'starware removal' and that was 1 result of 106,000.

Has anyone used Spyhunter? Or is there another way to get rid of Starware. When I ran Spyhunter it found a Trojan called Zlob.Trojan. How can i safely get rid of this? It says it's a dangerous Trojan horse.........
