I would be careful on what you delete, you also should back up your registry
before deleting anything. :>)

Hi Pam,

There is a very nice article on how to remove gator at:

and the main issue is ad-aware.   It seems ad-aware is the software that
will remove gator.

Removing Gator isn't hard, but it requires downloading a program called
<http://www.lavasoftusa.com/> Ad-aware. This program scours your computer
inside and out, checking for any known spyware or "adware" components.
Ad-aware gives you the option to delete anything it finds and remove it from
your system.

Another interesting website on gator is at:
<http://www.pchell.com/support/gator.shtml> .

If it's the same as it used to be, just uninstalling via the normal
uninstall methods is not enough.  The trouble maker part of gator remains on
your machine.  At one time, gator offered a download (some lawsuit forced
them to provide it). This download removed the reg entries and other stuff
that the uninstall did not.  Apparently they don't feel the need to offer
that anymore.  Try google.com, for "remove gator" and see what you come up

Hi Pam,
Below is an email message from Gator.   I have already unistalled gator and
it does not appear under "add/remove Programs".  Tonight I will seek
OfferCompanion;   maybe a registry hack.
Depending on which version of Gator eWallet you have, you may or may not
have OfferCompanion installed along with Gator eWallet, you can uninstall
either (or both) program(s) using the steps below.

To uninstall Gator eWallet, follow these steps, 

>From the Windows Start button, select Settings and then Control Panel. 

When the Control Panel window opens, double-click on the Add/Remove
Programs icon. 

Locate Gator eWallet (note it may be labeled either Gator or Gator eWallet
depending on which version of Gator eWallet you have installed) in the
list of installed programs, click on it one time and then click on the
Add/Remove button. 

Follow the on screen instructions*, when the uninstall program has
completed, close all open windows. 

*During the uninstall there is a check box for "Delete User Information"
or "Erase the information that the Gator eWallet has stored on your
computer" (depending on which version of Gator eWallet you have
installed), check this box if you would like user information (name,
address, login ID / password combinations, etc.) that is stored in Gator
eWallet removed along with the program. 

To uninstall OfferCompanion use the same process, except locate
OfferCompanion in the list of installed programs instead of Gator eWallet.
