Manual removal

Please follow the instructions below if you would like to remove SWBar manually. Please notice that you must follow the instructions very carefully and delete everything that is mentioned.

If SWBar remains on your system after stepping through the removal instructions, please double-check by stepping through them again.

  1. Start the registry editor. This is done by clicking Start then Run. (The Run dialog will appear.) Type regedit and click OK. (The registry editor will open.)
  2. Delete 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Explorer \ Browser Helper Objects \ {B195B3B3-8A05-11D3-97A4-0004ACA6948E}, if it exists.
