It should be in control panel just find sweetim in the list, if you can't find it there, go to start>all programs and try and find it in your list and there should be an uninstall. if it loads in your browser and not a seperate program then it's an add-on and can be removed via the tools menu in whatever browser you're using

SOURCE: i can't remove sweetim toolbar
Many IE tool-bars are deliberately designed to resist removal,
behaving like viruses, because the companies who write them
get revenue from site visit counters. Also many of these tool-bars
infect your computer whether you ask for them or not.
(sweetim is categorized as malware by several watchdog sites)
1) The first step in removing it, is to download a good ad-ware
remover, such as:
Ad-Aware from Lavasoft:
Spybot Search & Destroy from Safer Networking:
2) Both of these programs are very good at what they do,
and they are absolutely FREE.
3) Please be extremely careful to go to the legitimate web
sites and download the "Real McCoy" because there are
hundreds of fraudulent sites out there pushing rogue
anti-malware programs with similar names.
The rogue sites promise you a free scan, come back
with a bunch of false positives, and then extort you
4) Scan your computer with both products and they should
remove the critter.
5) If that fails, you may want to try anti-virus programs,
such as AVG, McAfee and Kaspersky.
( I do NOT like Norton's)
All of these product cost money, but they do have free
trial downloads, and they are a good investment. You
only need one of these, I prefer AVG by Grisoft from
the Czech Republic. (Version 8 with firewall is very good)
7) Another very useful tool is the startup monitor & startup
control panel from Mike Lin's website:
The monitor runs in the background and gives you
a warning message when a program tries to install
itself in the registry startup keys.
you can then choose to allow or block the action.
This will stop many bad programs in their tracks.
The control panel applet allows you to review and
manage all programs which startup automatically,
except for hooks and services.
6) If that fails, you will have to search running processes,
and search the registry to remove it manually
this gets complicated, and it is sometimes less work
to re-install windows, depending on your situation.
I don't want to get into that until you have tried
the other things.
7) Finally, I am concerned why you are still running version
3.1 of Internet Explorer, which is very old and has
virtually no security. You should be running at least
version 6 if not 7. (6 is better, 7 is bloated)
8) The best solution is to abandon Internet Explorer altogether
and switch to FireFox from Mozilla.org:
What version of Windows are you running ?
