Can't remove sushi_tbar from search providers in manage add-ons

  1. We downloaded some articles from some random sites a couple weeks ago and the computer has been lagging at times since. It added a babylon tool bar as default, got rid of that, but when I went to see if it was a search provider in the manage add-ons tab this was in there and I can't remove it.

    "ws.infospace.com/playsushi_tbar/ws/redir?"

    There is more to the link sequence, I can add it if it helps. My question is how to remove it and has it done any damage.

    I can post the other logs in a separate post --- got an error code when I tried to include it all

    Thanks in advance,
    Warren

    Hi, you can disregard the conversation, got that fixed. I reinstalled internet explorer 8 and that got rid of the sushi_tbar mess. I ran the adwcleaner and I will post the results below.

    The problem with the associations was that the window that hosted adwcleaner for download made it look like I was downloading adwcleaner when it was something else that said DOWNLOAD HERE. Soon as I realized what I had done I uninstalled it and it took away my file associations.

    So if you see anything I sould fix let me know

    Thanks,

    Warren
