Have you tried the add/remove feature on your computer.

This will usually remove any programs that don't have an uninstall feature.

I've had GAIN on two computers , and on one I was able to uninstall it using the Add/Remove Programs thingy in the control panel. On the other one, it wasn't on the list of programs for some reason, so I just deleted the folder from the c:/ drive. That may be a bad thing to do, but it worked okay for me!

my work computer is screwed up anyway. who cares if I screw it up more?

try a program called ad-aware, it searches for spyware programs on your computer and gives you the option to remove them.
Tis quite useful
Though I think some programs (file-sharing etc) require you have their extra software to function, but if you want rid of it, this is the way to go afaik

Kazaa will stop working, but you can install Kazaa light which doesn't have the spyware and popups. I'd do a search on cnet.com or google for download sites.
