Problem add on taskar

I have finally got the XP machine running as should be but have one small problem left. I am stuck trying to get rid of a search bar / page called "sweet page" and it is proving to be extremely hard to get rid of. Google searches suggest it is a from of malware and I have tried just about everything I can throw at it with no luck.

Anyone got any ideas on this wretched issue as it has obviously downloaded with something the owner has put on. I did a repair install and foolishly kept his old settings. I would rather not have to go back and do another reinstall as this one has proved to be problematic.

John I would still run this because it might find some more little goodies.
I use it a couple times a week because I'm paranoid.
