    As I always tell peolpe.. be careful what you click on... Try uninstalling it from Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs. Make sure IE is not running. You might have to try a spyware removal tool, one of the better ones, and free, is Spybot Search & Destroy. Try this link for removal instructions :
