I blame Microsoft for making it way too easy for this stuff to get installed in the first place. Sure, the companies who write them are scum, but Microsoft has done nothing to help the situation.
One PC that I work on every now and then is always getting this crap. I decided the best way to fix it is to make it virtually impossible to run IE. Problem with that is, they might get confused with different icons, and go and seek out IE for some reason. So, I installed Firefox, and, instead of deleting the IE icons, I just pointed them to Firefox. I even kept the icon the same. Now, the only possible way to run IE on that machine is to go into Program files\Internet Explorer, and double-click on Iexplorer.exe. Hopefully that will help.
Walk down to the railroad track and ride a rusty train
With a million other faces I shoot through the city veins
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye old friend
You wanted to be free
And somewhere beyond the bitter end is where I wanna be
