First, Open Mozilla FireFox in Safe Mode:

Start > All Programs > Mozilla Firefox > Click Mozilla Firefox (Safe Mode)

Second, with Firefox open:

Click Tools > Add-ons > And click the uninstall/remove/change button on the add-on you wish to remove.

    What was driving me mad was that sweetIM kept on coming up when I opened a NEW TAB in firefox. Mozilla help sorted that for me. As they say be careful, but type about:config into an address bar, find browser.newtab.url double click and change the link to whatever you want. If you want the default new tab layout back, type about:newtab. How brilliant is that!

    Unfortunately I did everything as was specified, but still can not delete the Mozilla firefox SweetIM's for this reason I ask you to be more clear in what I do and proceed to delete this business once and for all from my computer .. .

    I did everything you guys said in here (except that I couldn't find the firefox 'safe mode') and I still couldn't uninstall this plague. I don't even know how I've got in my computer in first place. when I type an address or word for search in the address bar, the results are return on a sweetim page (like the google one). I've tried to change the default search engine, unistalled everything that said sweetblahblah from the control panel>intall/uninstall programs and it still annoys me... anymore suggestions ?? (different ones, please ???) thanks!

How to remove SweetIM from a desktop computer? Have already gone to remove add programs highlighted SweetIM it tries to remove the program however a pop-up window appears wih fatal error during...

First off, when you want to delete a program; I suggest getting REVO uninstaller. Revo will not only delete the program using the original removal method; but it looks into the registry for Left Over commands and erases them from there. The other thing you may experience is, your Internet Exployere has been changed from the original opening page to SweetIM. Got to the Gear Icon in the upper right corner of the page. right click, and got to the internet options and make the page Restart the Internet and see if that changes the opeing page to MSN. If so you may have eliminated the Sweet!

I can't remove sweetim toolbar

Yes. It's spyware, so if you had decent anti-malware protection, you wouldn't've been able to install it in the first place, but that's another story.

Please download a programme called Revo Uninstaller from:--

Then use the "Advanced" uninstall mode. Follow the instructions and this wretched toolbar and all its hidden components will disappear.
