This toolbar is also a search hijacker and BHO. It will also try to install a
number of other applications which according to the terms you agreed to while
installing it CAN do!

Now in the future try doing a GOOGLE and type in:
"what is name.exe" or whatever you need to find out - it works and you'll
get the answer right away.
