Im really annoyed that this crap has invaded my laptop. I have obviously agreed to install it somewhere with out realising it. Sneaky bastards.

Ive unistalled in on control panel and gone to internet explorer, tools and disabled it but it wont give me the option to remove it. There are instructions on their site on how to remove it but i dont know where half the stuff they are telling me to go to are!!

How to i remove it completely guys? x
