    Shut down IE.

    Go to Start/run > Regedit

    Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Extensions.

    Highlight that key, and go to Registry/Export Registry key.
    Back up the registry key in a safe location.

    Now examine the subkeys. The entry you want to get rid of will be there.

    Remove it.

    Relaunch IE, and it will be gone.

    Good luck,
