Question

Hello, my problem is, I few days ago I let my friend use my computer while I was out of town. He downloaded Yahoo's messanger service and Companion. The companion is attached to Internet Explorer and takes up too much space on the screen. So in order to see a document I have to scroll through a small space. How do I get rid of this Mess he has caused me?
