    I went to uninstall this toolbar after discovering it in my Add/Remove Programs list, however, Ad-Aware's Ad-Watch prevented me from doing so because of the Trojan it detected. Any advice on making it so I can uninstall it, then clean it out using my Anti-Malware tools?

    It allowed me to uninstall it normally this time, not sure what changed. o_O
    I ran MalwareBytes, I knew I had forgotten to re-install something after re-formatting.
    No infections, but he's the log, let me know if you'd still like the SUPERAntiSpyware log as well:

    I guess since you've been able to uninstall that toolbar, you can mark your thread solved. If you did download and install SUPERAntiSpyware already, running a scan can't do any harm.
