    Go to Windows/Downloaded Program Files/ and view th properties of th Active-X controls installed. Delete th one whose properties list th source as www.naupoint.com. Start regedit and search for 'naupoint' and manually delete all entries related to it. Be sure to backup ur registry before attempting this.
