adware

Sometime recently I downloaded a tool bar named "hotbar" where videos , music can be downloaded free.

When I run a scan with my malware removal tool I get about 32 adware infections from hotbar. They are automatically moved to Quarintine and removed by programme. I am having difficulty uninstalling hotbar programme.
If infections from this site contiue what should I do?.

My computer is working pefectly otherwise as far as loading and speed are concerned.

RE: adware

you can usually remove it from ad/remove programs!

it install as a normal program - it just happens to be a piece of junk
Malwarebytes Antimalware or Spybot S&D should clean any traces of it out
