Now I'm not even sure that the one above is the correct one, there are so many SafeSearch entries! First check if any of the files listed ARE on your machine, if not, ignore the removal instructions.

If it's SafeSearch.net then you may have 3 parts to do.

uninstall SafeSearch toolbar | 1. Click on Start -> Control Panel | 2. Double click on "Programs and Features" or "Add/Remove Programs" - depending on your operating system | 3. Find "SafeSearch" and click on uninstall

remove SafeSearch extension: Open your browser Add-on settings and remove SafeSearch

remove SafeSearch homepage: Open your browser General settings and change your homepage
