Unfortunately that's a bad one. Microsoft purposely made it uninstallable. I've heard that if you have a system restore point back from before you installed it, you can get rid of it that way.

Eewww! Searched the Microsoft Knowledge Base which lead to this: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/win...r/faq.aspx#2_3 (2.3). Also, look at 2.4. If you have Windows 2000 or 98, it can be done easily otherwise, it's a restore point.
