Thanks for your help.
I was able to remove the 180 Search Assistant before, the same way as it was in the link from you,
but I need to remove it fully. It left a search page and a popup page opener.
Called Search for... , when I try to remove it by opening the search properties and to change the search page it opens searchmeup.com  
Do you have more clues?

Hi
First download a program called Ad-aware.It can be found here http://www.lavasoftusa.com/support/download/.Install it,check for updates and run a full system scan.Hopefully it'll get rid of the thing.
If not there is a link for manual remove http://www.sawtoothdistortion.com/Articles/Uninstall180Search.html

Hope this will help.

AdAware's done it. Thanks a lot. I don't know why I didn't use it by now. ;o) (I tried SpyBot but that wasn't enough).
One's more thanks
