Amazon Assistant keeps installing even after uninstall.

I first noticed the Amazon Assistant icon on my browsers toolbar around the first of the year. I have no clue where Amazon Assistant came from. I have not had any updates/downloads, that I have noticed, that had anything extra piggy backing on it. My main problem is that I have tried, many, many times, to uninstall, but it keeps automatically downloading nearly as soon as I open IE! This is on my work computer. I have absolutely no use for it. How in the ever loving heck do I get the thing to uninstall and STAY uninstalled???

It won't let me uninstall from the hard drive - the only option I get is "Change".  And it keeps reinstalling on my

computer too.

If the instructions at don't work,

right-click your Taskbar and select Task Manager.

On the Processes tab find Amazon Assistant, right-click it and End process.

Try uninstalling again.
