    As Wet Chicken suggested, you could download Ad-Aware 6 and have it do a thorough cleaning of your unwanted files.

    Go here for the free Ad-Aware 6 Personal Build 181: http://www.lavasoft.de/support/download/

    Launch the program ... on the start-up screen, you will need to first run the Webupdate Feature (globe at the top), or click "check for updates" to get the Reference File up to date.

    Please use the Custom Scan with Memory and Both registry scans ON. Also.... make sure that you activate IN-DEPTH scanning before you proceed.

    Then see that you have these options checked:
    Under Ad-Aware 6 Settings, Tweaks, Scanning Engine:
    "Unload recognized processes during scanning."
    Under Ad-Aware 6 Settings, Tweaks, Cleaning Engine:
    "Automatically try to unregister objects prior to deletion."
    "Let Windows remove files in use after reboot."

    Next ...

    Run Ad-Aware 6.
    Mark the objects you wish to eliminate for removal. There are many options available with a right-click.
    Make a Quarantine only if you do not have the Auto-Quarantine option ON.
    Then choose "Next" to remove the chosen objects.
    Finally ... Reboot

    Please read http://forums.techguy.org/t164245/s.html for further instructions, settings , etc.

    Once you are cleaned up, you might want to visit http://www.wilderssecurity.net/index.html and download the following:

    SpywareBlaster v2.6.1
    SpywareGuard v2.2

    These will prevent Active-X drive-by installations, as well as provide real-time browser hijacking protection.

    Lastly, consider installing IE-SPYAD, a registry file that adds a long list of known crapware to the Restricted Sites of your Internet Explorer: http://www.staff.uiuc.edu/~ehowes/resource.htm

    You could also try deleting it in DOS mode, but AdAware is the preferred way. If you still can't get rid of it, I would post about it on the AdAware forum so that they could find out why it is so hard to remove. Might be important to people with spyware everywhere Let us know what worked ;)

    If anything remains behind, I'm sure Aaron will want to get his hands on the file for evaluation and possible inclusion in the next reference file.

    Yeah when you run AdAware, make sure you use the quarantine setting and save the file so they can study it and include it in the next update for everyone else.
