  1. No matter how many attempts I make in trying to remove stopzilla from my add/remove, I still have the computer icon showing stopzilla is still in the pc.

    Remove it while in <SAFE MODE>
    Reboot.
    Start in <SAFE MODE> by depressing the <F8> key repeatedly once per second.

    Then after entering Safe Mode, and the computer finally stabilizes, run MalwareBytes, SuperAntiSpyware, and Avira or Avast...

    This could take two hours...
    Then run HiJack This, and get back to us with the results.

    Yes, you need several steps to remove StopZilla

    I found 2 posts on how to remove ALL pieces of StopZilla, including the firefox toolbar and the firefox location bar search. The posts are: http://annoyances-resolved.blogspot.com/2009/11/stop-zilla-to-rescue-maybe-not.html and http://annoyances-resolved.blogspot.com/2009/11/how-to-change-firefox-location-bar.html
