    If it's listed via Add/Remove Programs, uninstall it there first

    Then download and run these:

    Ad-Aware SE: http://www.lavasoftusa.com/support/download/

    SpyBot: http://majorgeeks.com/download2471.html

    Check for updates for both programs before running them

    With Ad-Aware, do a full system scan - delete anything it finds
    With SpyBot, run it and fix all selected problems

    You can always post a Hijack This log if the problem continues
