Angry I want to get rid of GATOR!!!

How can I get rid of GATOR?? That stupid thing that pops up advertisement from your taskbar! I hate it! I must have installed it without properly reading the small print of some program. Help me get rid of it, because I'm maaad

I can't seem to find any reference to GATOR in my startup, msconfig or installed applications.
