I've been trying to get rid of this thing for months, and I'm hoping that someone can tell me how to do it.
I have two sweetpack toolbars in my add-on's that keep enabling themselves, and this both slows down my Internet explorer to the point that it takes MINUTES to load and show websites sometimes, and will even lock up the computer. When I disable them, everything works great... until they re-enable themselves.
I've tried to uninstall it from my add/remove programs, it won't uninstall and actually opens up a new add/remove window that "isn't" there for my screen reader, but I can read it with some keystrokes.
The "Remove" in the add-on's area either isn't there, or is grayed out so I don't see it, so can't remove them there.
I've tried to delete the Sweetpacks folder from my Program Files, but I get an error that one of the files is protected or something and cannot delete it.
For references, I'm using the very out of date Windows XP O/S and Internet Explorer 8. I cannot upgrade or update the O/S, nor can I do anything about upgrading IE. I'm stuck with what I have.
So, anyone have any ideas? The file that is protected is a .dll file, if that helps. This thing is slowing my system and IE way, way, way down, but I just cannnot get rid of it. I'm reluctant to use the uninstall option offered by Sweetpacks, as they were the ones to put the thing on my system to begin with when I installed AVG... so, HELP?
