Snag It - How do I get this expired trial to stop loading at startup?

I tried Snag It for 30 days and opted not to buy it.  I still get it on my quick start bar and in my outlook.  It drives me crazy because I am always accidentally hitting it in outlook.  How can i remove this?  It will not remove in Add/Remove programs.
&^%$#@!

Thanks.

you could also remove it from startup in msconfig
start->run->msconfig
go to the startup tab and uncheck any snagit entries.
after your next reboot you will get a message stating your startup has changed.  select the option to not display the message again.

it tells me it can't be removed because of some file - can't recall which - that can't be removed.

I vote for the regedit manual removal, as mentioned.

Have you gone to Snagit to check for manual removal?

From their site:
"If the standard Windows uninstall method does not work, please refer to the README.TXT file located in the directory that the TechSmith software is installed in for instructions on how to manually uninstall."

backup your registry
go to start run regedit

hkey_local_machine\software\microsoft\windows\current version\uninstall\(program folder).((possibly snagit)).

remove that folder in its entirety.

this will get it out of add/remove programs.

then you can remove any related folders from program files.

check startup folder make sure that the program is not in there and also not in startup or in the registry's run folder (if it is remove it)

hope that helps

You can try jv16 powertools at http://www.jv16.org/  This program is fully functional for 30 days and will remove the startup entries, the registry entries and the add/remove program entries.  You should then be able to delete the program directory.  I highly recomment the program, it only costs $29

dont wanna mess with REgistry Dont do it...it's just a manually way to do it.. (LAST RESORT) !!**still not there**!!

If you checked startup on MSconfig and no luck, that's becaouse the program is starting as a Service not as an application.. on the same MSconfig go into services and hide all microsoft services, hopefully you'll find it...restart PC and try again.

Didn't work? and

In the same msconfig in the general tab go select diagnostic startup.. and restart and try again...

If the file is still loading and cant remove.. go into START>programs>startup   check for any unwanted entries here..

Hope I was of help to you

This Snagit Has been the most most miserable piece of crud -- along with the usual much liked Lexmarks I've had in the past - for troubleshooting.  I could go on for hours on a rant but I won't.  Other messages to post...

Thanks all.  Wish I could select an answer but unfortunately there really ISN'T one here (or anywhere on net) that works.
