    Well, it looks like Gator is probably linked to a "freeware" program you installed, and it reloads Gator everytime you use the program, so you need to find which program it is...

    thanks for the help everyone. i figured out how to get rid of gator on my computer. gator didn't show up for me on add/remove programs and when i search the computer for 'gator' it comes back with a couple of cookies.

    what i had to do was delete the folder 'CMEII' in

    c:\program files\common files\cmeii

    and gator went away...
