After searching the Web, I've found the apparent recommendation is to "run the uninstaller" or do a regedit session deleting keys. I've tried these both, but it manages to reinstall itself again and again, even immediately after reboot. My assumption is that I haven't removed it at all.
Short of reformatting the hard drive and reloading the OS (Win2k), is there a way to remove and prevent these products from coming back? I want the IE to look like it did when I originally loaded the OS.
I think you're going to have to try running (several) spyware removal programs such as PestPatrol, Spybot or Adaware. This should fix the problem.
