Wow, Frank, good to know. That is toxicware, for sure. And it is not Windows-standard so Microsoft 
should have warned you on install. As I understand it, to avoid the "not XP standard" warning, your 
software must have a full-uninstall utility.

In XP, you can "wind back the hands of time" to before the install, but anything you changed from 
the install forward would also be lost.
