    does anyone know how to remove this wretched thing?

    www.surferbar.com if you don't know what i'm talking about

    i emailed the webmaster [a hotmail address], and kanoodle about it

    hopefully they get back to me

    this is why we need 'internet police' ... or a more secure operating system

    that'll learn ya to download cracks

    have you tried using spybot to get rid of it? or going in your registry to delete any references to the related files?

    adaware did nothing

    i'm looking for anything to do with "surfer bar" and "surferbar" right now in my registry and deleting each key

    i think i got this plague by simply visiting suprnova.org [a very popular bit torrent site]

    the actual site is down, but there are a few pop-ups that mysteriously dissapear

    spybot search and destroy is better than adaware

    i haven't heard of / used spybot, but i'll get it now

    manually removing the reg keys worked [there were only about 9 or 10]



    note to everyone: don't visit suprnova

    I don't see how you could have installed this surferbar by simply "visiting" the site.
