How to uninstall Searchqu toolbar

Somehow a "Searchqu" toolbar had installed on my computer (running Windows 7/IE8). Following advice I ran the uninstall application that I found in "system/program files/Windows searchqu and rebooted. The directory and its contents have now gone but the "Searchqu" toolbar still appears in the list of possible toolbars under "View", "toolbars" in IE8. It isn't checked so I don't see it but how do I get rid of it?

Anyone have an idea?

Hi,

No guarantees, but see if SpyBHORemover can remove this.
