Has anyone seen anything on a product name Adware Remover Gold. Have it installed on a client xp machine and when you go to uninstall product you are sent out to their website. Searched and didn't find anything about the removal of this piece of junk. I guess I could go to the registry and yank it out.
Is listed in add&remove programs as adaware & spyware.

Any suggestion ?
