I just had to deal with this and although I was able to manually clean it up, there was a lot of hidden stuff left behind even after a thorough manual removal.
I acquired this *%$# thing by downloading a free font from a site called fonts101. The download came as an .exe and upon executing, WinPatrol notified me of this unwanted toolbar. I said "no" and "no" etc. etc. Unfortunately after stopping the installation of the font, the toolbar had punched through WinPatrol and been installed in IE, Firefox and Chrome. Also my default search engine had been changed to Babylon in all three. It did all of this without any permission on my part and even though I aborted installing the font. Furthermore it created a user.js in Firefox to ensure that the Firefox about:config settings would be modified even after manually cleaning out the preference settings.
It may not be malware, but it sure acts like it. This is not an easy thing to remove. It places two removable entries that you can uninstall, but uninstalling does not undo the changes to the home page and default search and some of these are not all that easy to change back even after the toolbar has been removed.
After dealing with manual removal, I am happy to recommend Ad-Remover
. This free (donation-ware) program will remove it completely.Download
