    For everyones info, AdAware vs 5.38 - with the standard June 02 reference file - didn't even see Xupiter, much less remove it.

    So, when using AdAware to remove Xupiter; be absolutely certain that you have updated the reference file file to 042-24.09.2002. As downloaded from the Lavasofft website as late as this morning, version 5.38 doesn't have this updated reference file in it. Unzip it into the AdAware program folder.

    Once I updated the reference file, AdAware spotted 27 previously unrecognized files, all of which were Xupiter related.

    Speedy-B, Tried that uninstall page. Didn't do squat here. I think it may only remove the taskbar goody in Internet Explorer - I use Opera. After doing the so-called "un-install" - all of the Xupiter files were still in my Program folder under Xupiter. After running updated AdAware, all 27 files were gone as well as the registry entries.
