No, I un-installed Kaspersky.
But the add-on apparently stayed put. > > Disabling the extension should should effectively remove it's usage if > you can;'t uninstall it Yes, but it remains on my list of add-ons. An eye-sore. Nothing more. > This forum reply on Kaspersky's site solution found by poster was to > reinstall Kaspersky then uninstall it again. > http://forum.kaspersky.com/lofiversion/index.php/t123929.html Useful, but over-the-top. I should not need to re-build a house, just to remove the chimney, and then demolish the whole thing again?

I just deleted that (manuallly), and the entry disappeared. Thanks for your help.
