i have a file that I can not get rid of that I believe is associated with Zestyfind.com

Adaware can locate it but it says it can not remove it because it is still running.  The file is called

aqtiveds.cpy.dll

I have also recently noticed that there is something on my toolbar called "bird dupe cast"  Is this part of the Zestyfind problem?
