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?

Download, install and run the free version of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware.

Click Update > Check for Updates.

When the definition files have updated, click OK.

Click the Scanner tab > Perform quick scan > Scan.

If infections are found during the scan, the number of infections will be highlighted in red.

When the scan is finished, click Show Results.

Make sure that everything is selected, then click Remove Selected.

If you're prompted to restart to finish the removal process, click Yes.

Start Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware again.

Click the Logs tab.

Highlight the scan log entry, then click Open.

When the scan log appears in Notepad, copy and paste it into your next reply.

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.
