ISTbar won't go away

Help, I have tried the PCAdvisor helproom suggestions on the website, I have downloaded Symantec's ISTbar remover, which says don't have it. Spybot, Spyware Doc & Blueyonder says I have it but can't delete it. I noted all the Register enteries & PC files and deleted them manually, execpt one entry in the Register which refuses to go. HKLM/software/ISTbar & it's sub directories History & HistoryFiles. I managed to delete the contents of one but not the other. Everytime I highlight the ISTbar entry and hit delete, I get 'Access denied, can not delete'.

I thought that there may be a process running somewhere, so I booted in SafeMode and tried but no good. Help!!. I pray that I don't have to reformat the drive and reinstall XP, or have i disabled ISTbar enough by deleting the files I have to make it unusable??
