    Whenever I bring up IE I get a gambling toolbar from Aspinalls. I've gone into the registry and deleted it. I've gone into favorites and got rid of it. I can't find the program on my hard drive. How do I get rid of this?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Download Hijack this , unzip it , do a scan then save the log as well as copy and paste the saved log here for someone to look at.

    What are you running? 98, 2000. XP
    How did you delete it from your registry?
    Did you look in explorer and programs?
    Do you have an unistall program?

    SR-This doesn't answer your question but is a tip to use if the program you are trying to remove has no reference in Add/Remove.

    You can uninstall by going to the registry, HKey_Local_MaChine\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\ "The Program you want to install will be next" Somtimes these are just the GUID so you may need to open them up. Look for the key "uninstallString" this will contain somthing like:
    C:\WINNT\IsUninst.exe -f"D:\Program Files\InstallShield\InstallShield 5.5 Professional Edition\Uninst.isu"
    Copy this and paste in the Run under your start menu. and press ok, it will run the uninstall. The items in your ADD/Remove Programs are in the registry and just point to these Reg Paths.
