Remove Huntbar

Question

Recently someone installed Huntbar on my computer, I am now unable to open IE. It tries to open and then shuts down. I can not find anyway to uninstall the huntbar software. I have tried adaware and spybot they both find it but will not uninstall. They say that it is resident in memory and they will clean at start up however at start up it is the same thing. Help
