Do you have the "Windows Installer Cleanup Utility" ? If not, do a
google search and download this free IMPORTANT program. After setting
it up, and running it from the Start Menu- you will see a list off all
programs that have been installed by using the Windows Installer.

I had the same problem as you did. Although these spyware programs were
not able to be removed from the Add/Remove Programs menu, you CAN remove
the "CC_ccStart" by using this utility.

I hope this helps!!!
