You could unistall it from Add/Remove Programs and then, as Ecniv would say, get a registry cleaner and clean the registry of all traces of the gator.

Or if you are exp with the reg you could just use regedit.

yes.. but I am sure that there are many instances of gator and gain throughout your reg.

I would use the find option and keep searching until you have deleted all instances.

A new feature also monitors thing that ie tries to download without you knowing and prompts you saying that its bad software and asking you weather or not to block it
