ShopAtHomeSelect Manual Removal:
There should be an entry in the Control
Panel's Add/Remove Programs entry for 'ShopAtHomeSelect
Agent'. Use it to remove the software then
restart the computer.
You can delete the damaged
inside the 'Downloaded Program Files' folder, the
'SAHUninstall.exe' file in the 'Windows' folder
and 'SahAgent.log' in the root of the C: drive to
clean up if you like.
If the entry for ShopAtHomeSelect remains in
your Add/Remove Programs even though the software
is uninstalled, you can get rid of it by opening
the registry (Start->Run->regedit) and deleting
the key 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\ShopAtHomeSelect
As with all software that uses Winsock2 LSPs,

to the highest key number you have. See, I told
you it was a lot of effort.
Next, open a DOS command prompt window (from
Start->Programs->Accessories) and enter the
regsvr32 /u "..\Downloaded Program Files\WEBinstaller.dll"
cd "..\Downloaded Program Files"
Restart the computer and you should be able to
delete the files 'tracking.tmp', 'vg.dat',
'v.dat', 'lsp.dll', 'SahDownloader.exe' and
'SahAgent.exe' from the System folder (inside the
Windows folder; called 'System' on Windows
95/98/Me or 'System32' under Windows NT/2000/XP).
You can also delete the registry key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\VGroup to clean up if
