Unwanted script

Hi
I'm pretty new to macs and computers in general, so this maybe a really simple problem to solve but - I recently downloaded a demo of some security software called Internet Cleanup. I didn't like it and deleted it after a while, but it appears to have left behind some kind of script which activates straight after startup - a popup screen appears telling me to purchase the software as the demo has finished. I don't think it's anything too serious but it is REALLY annoying.
Any help with this would be very gratefully recieved.
Cheers,
Kieran

Try this...

Goto the OSX System Preferences panel and click Accounts.
Select your account and on the right, click Startup Items.
Remove any entry that may be related to that program.
