Unwanted browser

Question

a few months ago, while using windows explorer, I "fat fingered" a couple of keys and wound up with a web browser I cannot get rid of. It is called "sexpatriot.com" I can delete it by applying "use blank" and it remians deleted until I turn the computer off and then it comes right back. I have run SPYBOT and a couple of other shareware programs but have had no luck. Do you have any tips as to ow to rid myself of this unwanted browser?
