want to remove ie7pro ad-on, but unable to. Any suggestions?

I downloaded ie7pro.  I did not like it.  It seemed to make my machine slower.  Went to add/remove to remove program, but I still get ie7pro search like a google bar with my home page behind it.  I've gone to tools, manage add-ons, and disabled all the ie7pro lines, but I still get the ie7pro search in the search bar.  Any idea on how to remove it?

If further ideas are needed, consider
1) a System Restore to a date before you installed IE7 Pro
2) Windows Installer Cleanup Utility http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;290301
or
3) RevoUninstaller  http://www.revouninstaller.com/

Both War1 and jcimarron sent me in the right directions.  I was able to remove most of the problem, but in the upper right search box that usually says google, I still could not get rid of the ie7pro search.  War1's sending me to the forum got me thinking about the regedit.  By going there and using find, I was able to delete all the registry keys with ie7pro scattered through out the registry.  Thanks to you both and some reasoning and deduction on my part the issue was resolved.
