Default HotSearchBar.com bar uninstall?

A stupid HotSearchBar.Com bar has installed itself on my internet explorer and adds porn links to my favorites and I now get tons of pop ups. I can't seem to find the uninstall and its not in add/remove programs. Anyone dealt with this crap before and know how to get rid of it?

be careful what you take out from hijack this, it can make things worst......if spybot doesn't work...I suggest taking it out mannually from regedit.
