How do I get rid of remnants of the Map-it toolbar?

I have done all the normal things to disable/uninstall the mapit toolbar but it still shows up in Internet Explorer 9 sometimes -such as when I'm on Facebook and my bank's home page. It doesn't work so I can't click on anything in it...it's just taking up space that I need. What do I have to do to get rid of all the remnants of this annoying toolbar?

Using this little free program could help.
AdwCleaner from this site.

I think that did it...thanks for the help. I had already run 2 different 'cleaners' but they didn't do the job. I will hang on to this one.
