    First, look in Add/Remove programs and see if it is listed and uninstall it. Then download and run spybot.

    Download Spybot - Search & Destroy

    http://beam.to/spybotsd


    After installing, go to the Online tab, and search for and install all updates.

    Next, go to the Settings tab > File Sets,and uncheck System Internals, Usage Tracking and Tracks.uti. These settings are not needed at the moment and you can always consult the "Help" files if you want to experiment later on.

    Finally, after closing down Internet Explorer, hit 'Check for Problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds. (If the scan has found something, the list will show it.)

    There are three basic kinds of results:

    Red entries indicate spyware problems that should be fixed to avoid security and/or privacy problems. This is the only kind of problem that is preselected to be fixed.

    Black entries are system internals. If you do not know what they mean, I would suggest that you leave these alone and visit the support forum for more information.

    Green entries indicate usage tracks. It can do no harm to remove these.

    NOTE: SSD will sometimes not be able to remove all active components in the first 'run'. In that case you will get a dialog asking you to run SSD at next start. Click yes and reboot.
    SSD will activate before the system puts these components 'in use', and it will then be able to 'fix' the rest.
