    get a 3rd party program like cc cleaner and uninstall it from there. There is also a program the registry of all installed files to ensure of a complete uninstall.

    If that doesn't work, run in safemode?

    I do not know about Toolbar updater per-se.

    One of the ways to get rid of "Pests" like this is to.

    Run Process Explorer and Kill the processes that are involved with the pest.

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/s...rnals/bb896653

    Then delete the installation of the "Pest" in the Program Files.

    If the files of the pest are locked this can be use to Unlock them.

    Then use ccleaner to clean the Registry.

    ---------------
    It will take few minutes to download and set the above free tools.

    However, it is a Good thing to have ready on your computer since it is a method that help to get rid of most unwanted "Pests".

    anyway, I disabled it, it is part of bing, bing still works with it disabled, cpu usage/spikage stopped...lavasoft loaded and did deep scannage, been awhile, was able to get rid of some semi nasty trackers, CCleaner was revisted too...
