Hi, I hope you can help me. Norton has shown that I have Adaware.Zango. I have run Adaware & Ewido bit they have not found it. I have gone in to my add/remove programmes as I was initially told but nothing is in there. Is there any easy way to get rid of it.

Mny thanks in advance

How do I uninstall Zango Search Assistant and Zango products?

Zango Search Assistant can be easily and completely uninstalled by choosing "Add or Remove Programs" from your Control Panel. Select “Zango Search Assistant” and follow the onscreen prompts to completely remove the application.

Step-by-step instructions:

1. Go to Start Menu
2. Select Control Panel
3. Select Add or Remove Programs
4. Click on Zango Search Assistant
5. Select Change/Remove
6. Follow onscreen prompts to completely remove the application

If the uninstall process was not successful, try the following alternative method.
Open. www.zango.com/Uninstall/ZUninstaller.exe

Click Run. A box should appear that says "ZUninstaller successful".
With these instructions, you should have been able to uninstall Zango.
