program files (uninstalled it), then it should have cleaned itself up a bit. If it is erroring still (trying to load), it was probably added to a startup group somewhere, in which case all you should need to do is uninstall it.

If it is actually not MS Antivirus, then it is likely spyware/malware or a virus (like XP AV08/09). If this is the case, it is probably better to pull out the toolkit and make sure it is removed completely!
You should use Antivirus, Antispyware, and more than 1 of each to scan the systenm (it will take a bit of time).
