Help Removing Adware Hotbar

A couple days ago I had a pop-up that said I had a Trojan! It really scared me so I shut everything down & made sure my McAfee data was up-to-date. (Done automatically anyway) I ran a scan & it didn't find anything on here. Still suspicous I used HouseCall & it found 4 Spywares & was able to delete 3. It could not fix the 4th which was the Adware-Hotbar. After much research, I have learned that it is very hard to get rid of. I have been able to straighten up the changes made to my internet home page & to Windows Mail. I just ran Earthlink PC Fine Tune this afternoon & it found nothing either. However, I still have the felling that even if it was removed it was only a partial removal & there's still a lot left - - - like registry entries. Any suggestions to solve this & give me some peace of mind would be appreciate. I am running:
Vista Homee Premium.
