The free version of NoAdware tells me that I have the Grip Toolbar on my PC. I have tried removing the file using AdAware and Spybot without any joy.
I cannot find the file on my PC - NoAdware points to it at HKEY_LOCAL_Machine\software\microsoft\current version\explorer\browser helper objects\{7E853072-626A-48EC-A868-BA8D5E23Eo45}.
Can someone please tell me how I locate that file to remove it? (It isn't on the add/remove programs list).
Thanks :thumbsup:

Thanks boopme.
None of the programs you listed were listed in add/remove programs.
I ran Trend Micro Home Edition as instructed.
Three scans (and about 5 hrs) later it had cleared lots of 18 cookies, but did not pick up Grip Toolbar. My PC had a virtual memory issue while the scan was running which I resolved!)
I ended up registering NoAdware (used the registration from my home PC!) and the NoAdware scan and clean appeared to get rid of Grip Toolbar.

The free version of NoAdware tells me that I have the Grip Toolbar...

NoAdaware is a program that was previously listed as a rogue product on the Rogue/Suspect Anti-Spyware Products List because of concerns with False positives and the use of aggressive, deceptive advertising including exploitation of the name "Ad-Aware". It has since been delisted but in my opinion it is not a very effective program compared to others with a proven track record like those mentioned in BC's List of Virus & Malware Resources or one of the other Trustworthy Anti-Spyware Products.
