    Click here to download the LOP uninstaller. Close all browser windows and run the uninstaller.

    When it is finished restart your computer.

    if you cannot get to that site then it is also available here http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/files/lopremover.exe

    Edit

    Many antiviruses detect the file on the LOP site as a downloader, This has only just started to happen so I assume that bthey have changed it somewhat.

    The file on my site isn't detected as a virus and does remove most versions of LOP.

    I won't guarantee it will work on the very latest ones though
