Help...can't get rid of WINTOOLS

I have searched for some good remedies and have failed at every turn.
I have used Hijack This and looked for WINTOOLS ...nothing.
I have looked in the Registry and all the recommended places..even did a search...nothing.
I have looked in Task Manager for anything-WINTOOLS..nothing.
Does it have a new name?
What works on this thing?
I think its running as a service but I can see anything-WINTOOLS - IE in services either.
suggestions?
Win2000 Pro.

WinTools can be a problem: do this! -
Hi!

Download HijackThis (version 1.99.1) from:
http://www.gatesofdelirium.com/ee/tools/
Place it into a folder of it's own - something like:
C:\HJT\hijackthis.exe or C:\Program Files\HJT\hijackthis.exe
Do not run it directly from the "Zip" file, a "temp" folder, or the Desktop.
HijackThis makes "backups" and it's good to have them in a centralized location.

With all browser windows closed - run HijackThis and
copy and paste the log file into the Analysis site here:
http://www.hijackthis.de/en

Click on the "Analyze" button; and when the analysis is done -
Click on the "Save Analysis" button -
A page will be generated with your saved analysis -
Post a LINK to that page back here.

Please, do not post your log file here!

Here's the Experts-Exchange guidelines on posting HijackThis logs:

We'll take a look at it!  :)

Good luck!
