    You can try to remove it by clicking Start > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs > find Incredimail and click on it to highlight it and give you the remove option and click Remove, but it probably won't completely remove it. Incredimail is hard to completely remove from your computer. Don't try this unless you are comfortable messing with your registery. If you aren't comfortable with this, find an expert to help you, because you wouldn't want to trash your operating system.

    Here are the instructions to get rid of Incredimail completely. Please export a current copy of your registry to desktop for backup just in case. (it's always best to do this before editing the registry) To access the registry, go to Start > Run and type in regedit and press the enter key. Once registry comes up, go to file and export and a box comes up, give it the name registry and the date, and choose desktop at the top and save. Now you are ready to follow the instructions below.

    To delete the registry keys for the Incredimail program:

    Start Registry Editor (Regedt32.exe).

    For each key that you need to delete, locate the key, right-click the key, and then click Delete:

    Under the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT key, delete the following keys:

    \.ima

    \.imf

    \.imi

    \.imn

    \.ims

    \.imw

    \Applications\Impcontent.exe

    \Applications\Incredimail

    \Incredicontent

    \Incredimessage

    Under the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE key, delete the following keys:

    Software\Classes\.imc

    Software\ Clients\ Mail\ Incredimail

    Software\ Elishim\ Protect\ Browser (remove the Incredimail value)

    Software\Incredimail

    Software\ Microsoft\ Direct3D\ Most Recent Applications\ (remove the NAME value that points to Incredimail.exe)

    \Microsoft\ Windows\ Current Version\ App Paths\ Incredimail

    Delete the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ Software\ Microsoft\ Windows\ Current Version\ Explorer\ MenuOrder\ Start Menu\ Programs\ Incredimail key.

    Quit Registry Editor.

    To get Hotbar out of your system, go to add and removes and remove hotbars. Now download a copy of either AdAware, or Spybot search and destroy (both free), and run a scan. It will find the rest of it and you can remove it easily from there.
