the cover dvd a few issues back had a free copy of cccleaner on it or you can download it for free. The second tab down called issues allow you to uninstall progs and this will do a good job for you.

SuperAntispyware should be able to remove this.

The free version is at click here

I think the links that rawprawn has posted will only scan for free....pay to remove.

Thanks everyone, Spybot seems to have done the job, thanks a million

In my opinion Spybot is a bit underestimated because it has been around a while. However, as in this case, I have found it to `save the day` when other, newer anti-malware fails.

I agree.

Spybot S&D has had some major improvements recently....like lots of the rogue antimalware programs added to its definitions.

It's also worth having for it's wide range of other tools (available in the advanced mode options) for controlling start up items and BHOs etc etc.

Not to mention its immunisation feature (similar to SpywareBlaster) and Hosts file blocking of malware.

And...if you can decipher and put up with the pop up warnings a good real time registry protector in the form of TeaTimer.

All in all well worth having....all the more so because it is completely free.
