I looked around online, and noticed that many people have many ways to get rid of this thing. That is why I decided to ask you guys. How do you uninstall the couponbar in windows 7?

Never had couponbar, but to uninstall I would try "Revo Uninstaller".

I'm not sure if I have it or not. Spybot search and destroy keeps telling me I have it in the registry but I don't have anything in my program lists.

gregoryshock125, Spybot is so outdated you should seriously consider uninstalling it and use something else.
to uninstall any app, use ronniesonora's suggestion and always run it in advanced mode.

If what Hermitt suggested try this.

here is another way but suggest you make a restore point before attempting and registry changes. You might want to also backup your registry.

Have you tried simply going into the Add-ons manager in each browser and disabling it/removing it?

I do use other anti-spyware programs. It's just that spybot was the only one that alerted me that I have the couponbar on here somewhere. I've been trying to figure out where I got this "program" so far I think it was when I installed my printer driver and software. Nothing was called "couponbar" But i think it was something called coupon printer. When I looked through the list of programs to uninstall, I noticed that it was made by coupon.com which is the same as where couponbar comes from. I've heard that HP puts malware in some of it's software.

As far as I can see, unless you see something different then I do. I don't have couponbar on my system, but some registry lines. I even did a search for the file couponbar.exe and couldn't find it.

This gives you both couponbar and coupon printer uninstalls if you have them. http://www.couponsinc.com/corp/source/u_uninstall.asp

I read through your links/webpages. As far as I can tell, after I uninstalled the couponprinter the couponbar was removed. Therefor I allowed spybot to remove the remaining registry entries. None of my other anti-spyware programs, found it. I figure it must not be that big of an issue if something as old as it appears to be, and the other spyware programs paid it no mind. Thank you for your help.
