After getting fed up with Bonzi changing my home page and popping up everytime I view a new item on Amazon (trying to help me find better prices...) I went to Add/Remove Programs and uninstalled him. After the necessary reboot, I still have this $ icon in my task bar that is trying to get me to upgrade Bonzi! I'm now searing the registry and removing all keys referring to Bonzi... I wouldn't mind Bonzi so much if it were easier to turn him off.

To get rid of the $ icon, which is probably started when you reboot/log in to windows, run MSCONFIG, and disable it using the Startup tab.

Cool. I hadn't seen the MSCONFIG util. I usually just edit the registry directly.
