There are a number of programs which can help you do this ... 

...I believe JunkwareRemovalTool is one of them, and you can find it in the resources here on BleepingComputer.

 

Cheers!

You can try RevoUninstaller to scan your system for remnants.

Hello: Thanks for the replies. Don't know if either would work for this specific function. We looked at the JunkwareRemovalTool and am somewhat familiar with the Revo program. I think Revo only seems to work if the uninstaller is there. If I am incorrect, I am sure somewhere here will correct me. Thanks for the tips though. Well keep this open to see more suggestions. Thank you both.

If it was a legitimate program, reinstall it...then use Revo to uninstall.

Thank You.
