The Xupiter (some people mistakenly think it's Zupiter) toolbar and other tools are a set of utilities that the majority of people deem useless. More importantly they ask, "How did this Xupiter stuff get on my computer in the first place?" Users refer to Xupiter as a parasite and a virus. This is not an opinion, it is what they are searching for in relation to Xupiter at Overture.com.

In this article, I'll tell you how to get it off your computer and I'll reveal how it got there in the first place. So, if you want to get rid of Xupiter, you've come to the right place.

Adaware version 6 will also remove it, but you need to take a special step--go to the ad aware forums to find it:
