    Re: Hotbar

    There is not universal love for this program. It has been called spyware, and there have been a few threads on how to get rid of it once it's installed:

    Outlook Express stationary (6.0)

    Removing Toolbars -- Hotbar In Particular (Outlook 2000 Corp)

    Thanks - I did a search on Hotbar (but only in Software Finds and Wants) before posting it but got no hits.

    I used AdAware to remove Hotbar but there remain 2 files it says it cannot remove, HbHostOE and HbInst, how do I get rid of these?

    I would think those files could not be deleted because they were in use. You could boot into safe mode and re-try, or if you prefer, find out what process is running and has spawned those open file connections. Doing the Ad-Aware scan in safe mode would increase the likelihood that nothing had those files open, since you'd be running the bare minimums anyway.
