How to Remove Wazam ?
Wazam can be removable using the Control Panel Add/Remove Programs entry for the program it came with (for example 'IconForge'; you can download a clean version of IconForge directly from CursorArts instead if you like).
To manually remove Wazam form your machine,
- Look for the Wazam.com folder in Program Files. For the variant distributed with IconForge this may be in 'C:\Program Files\CursorArts\IconForge\Wazam.com Toolbar'. This path may vary for different drives, Windows installation languages and variants of Wazam, so if yours is different you will have to change the command below to match.
- Open a DOS command prompt window (from the Start Menu, choose the 'Accessories' submenu in 'Programs' to find this), and enter the following commands:
regsvr32 /u "C:\Program Files\CursorArts\IconForge\Wazam.com Toolbar\SBar.dll"
- Restart Windows.
- Delete the entire Wazam.com folder.
- Open the registry editor(click Start > Run, and type ' regedit'), find and delete the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\SBB to clean up.
