"It's a deadly blade."
This program will help remove stuff you don't want, such as hidden start-up items, extra toolbars, etc. It's actually not that hard to use, though many say it is. Just read a tutorial, or use the 'more info' button, and with a bit of your own knowledge, you should be able to deal with it. A general rule of them would be: If you recognize a program name that you use in the line somewhere, keep it. If you don't look into it a bit, or post it on a forum so other knowledgeable folks can tell you what they think.. I used this program to remove a particularly nasty piece of software that just kept coming back. With a bit of computer knowledge, this will blow spyware away. Oh yeah, no cost to you too.

If you remove something, be sure you did make a backup...or else, if it was a harmless piece of software, you probably just damaged your browser.
Lists a bunch of irrelevant entries, but if you know the program, just add it to your ignore list and soon your list won't look so intimidating anymore.
