Try spybot search and destroy I dont have a link but try google it should come up.

If that doesent work do the following.

Search your registry for topclicks and delete all the keys that are found.
Run msconfig
go to selective startup see if theres anything in there related to topclicks then locate and delete these files.

Look in the program files folder for anything related to topclicks and delete.

Then look in downloaded program files in thw windows directory and look for anything associated with topclicks and delete.

If in doubt of the files check there propeties especially for downloaded program files.

I think that should do it.

UK_trader is correct. If you do a ctrl+alt+del when it's running, you can narrow it down. Try using [url=***********]Ad-Aware. However once you find the offending file, you can't delete is while it's running. So you have to make sure that you disable virtually everything in msconfig and reboot. Then you can delete it.
