Sweetpacks Toolbar is often paired with other Malicious Things.  Even if you feel that it is not causing current harm to your computer, it is usually recommended to remove it as it can lead to other malicious programs that can cause damage to the integrity of your computer. I've seen 100s of computers and every time I run a scan and find Sweet Packs, I usually always find other bigger issues as well.
