How do I delete or remove Hotspotshield completely from Firefox? I already deleted it using the control panel programs & features function.


I tried to delete Hotspot shield using the control panel function. Now it keeps showing up when ever I am using Firefox. I tried deleting the tool bar for it. But, it keeps coming back. it will show up on different accounts when I change pages. Like when I log onto the Telus account to pay bill. So how do I get this removed from my computer completely?
