Found this online. Maybe it will help:

1) Download, install & run "Ad-Aware SE". (It's FREE) First check for updates. Then do a full scan and quarantine/remove whatever pops up.

Note : Do NOT reboot if prompted to do so.

2) Download, install & run "Spybot-SD". First click on "Search For Updates". Then
go into the "Tools" section (located on the left hand side pane) and make sure everything is highlighted.

NOTE : This toolbar is of a very malicious nature, so even when AD-AWARE removes certain files from step #1, the toolbar will try to re-install itself without your knowing. Fortunately you've got Spybot-SD to catch that! A Spybot-SD window will most likely appear (that's what happened to me) indicating that a change is trying to be made to your registry. When this message pops up, you will have the option to track the file path of which program is making the request. And you will clearly see it's the AZESearch toolbar that's trying to reinstall itself. DENY CHANGE is the option you should select, and make sure there's a checkmark in the "Remember This Always" box (something like that).

Do NOT reboot if prompted to do so.

3) Download, install & run "Microsoft AntiSpyware Beta1" (http://www.microsoft...re/default.mspx). First, check for any updates. Then run the program.

NOTE : This BETA software is only available to legitimate XP owners (not people who have a pirated version). But I'm sure somebody has a hacked version if you just check with KaZaa or any other file sharing P2P program(not that I'm condoning and/or endorsing it)

Once you're done the scan and have removed/deleted everything REBOOT YOUR PC.
