    I went through all of the steps and was able to delete all references to WhiteSmoke except one. WhiteSmoke New Customized Web Search remains in IE 8 toolbar, upper right corner. In IE>Tools>Manage Add Ons>Search Providers, WhiteSmoke will not allow it to be deleted/removed. The remove button will not activate the same as it does for other providers when I select them however, I can disable it, which I have done. Can I remove WhiteSmoke completely from the IE tool bar? Is there anything else I can do?

      Yes that is because Whitesmoke is a BHO that will install to your computer and attach to your internet browser(s) as an add-on or extension… You have to uninstall software using the Windows Uninstaller interface (etc.) before you can remove the add-on from Internet Explorer.
