Problem Summary: want to remove browsersafeguard programe

Hello, was trying to locate browsersafeguard in my add/remove programs so I can remove it but its not listed there. I did find it in program files (x86) but can not remove it from there.

If I do a system restore, will this remove the files? From what I have read it may not work. I really don't want to go thru the manual process and don't have funds to purchase a malware removal program. Thanks.
