cheers mate i have already checked the symmantec
page but not to clued up on messing around with registry keys and whatnot it all looks daunting!

Norton *should* remove it .........Symantec suggest booting into safe mode and running the scan from there.

I don't know about Counterspy.......different products list different things as problems.Maybe gogo tools is one of those things Counterspy doesn't detect.

If you use Spybot S&D, it has a browser helper listing in it's advanced mode>Tools>BHOs section.That lists all the Browser helper objects on your pc and lets you delete any you don't want.If gogo tools is listed you can remove it from there.
