Not listed for Add/Remove programs. Spybot says it removes it, but 13 registry entries remain. Attached to IE8 on every restart. After restart, must run Spybot then reinstall IE8. Time consuming. I've spent 6 hours so far on this.

i strongly believe this is a scamThey want you to buy their "software" but you cannot delete crossrider from the "allowed" sites under Tools. They took over my computer and I do not appreciate it.
get rid of it
I found Crossrider on a routine scan. I always run Spybot as an administrator so used it to remove Crossrider. I then shut down then rebooted and scanned again. It was gone. I don't know what use it is or if it is dangerous, but Spybot picked it up and I got of this uninvited guest.
