|Not sure if you already found the solution, but I too have been dealing with this for the past week. It infected my work laptop and was very frustrating. I went to every forum did all the steps, edited the registry, Ad-Aware, spybot, windows defender, Hijackthis, etc., nothing seemed to wipe it out, until tonight when I found a post regarding SuperAntiSpyware. I also wanted to get rid of IE7 but couldn't through any conventional means. |
I had first deleted the IE keys in the registry then went into the ie7 folder in system32 and ran the spuintall.exe (I think that was what it was called). It finally was uninstalled and then I installed SuperAntiSpyware via Firefox ran it 2 times and all seems to have been cleared up. Hope that helps if you haven't figured it out yet.
