You want to remove EVERYTHING?

If so, just reformat the disk. For a more comprehensive removal, DBAN the disk.

Of course, the system will be completely unusable afterwards, but at least everything will be removed.

I am referring to that thing in the upper right corner of my screen. It takes up space on my screen. Thank you. user470

Well, Alot isn't standard, so you can't blame anybody for not knowing it. You're the one who installed it in this case, we (Mark and I) didn't install in our systems. We're rather careful with what we install.

Luckily, http://www.google.com/search?q=alot+toolbar will tell Mark what it is, and you how to remove it. Everybody happy again.
