My Search Bar (Adware)

I've tried to delete the annoying MY SEARCH BAR (adware) from ADD/REMOVE programs from the control panel and click remove then choose yes but it is still on my computer. It won't seem to REMOVE, it is still on the list of the programs on ADD/REMOVE under the control panel. Does anyone know how to solve this issue?
