That program is normally installed along with something else. Did you install any other coupon/toolbar software?

Once you uninstalled the program, did you remove the Add-in from Firefox?

Take a look here... lots of information:

Also, are you running up-to-date anti-virus and malware programs?

For a final check.

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it onto your Desktop. If your default download location is not the Desktop, drag it out of it's location onto the Desktop.
If we have to run Farbar more than once, refer this SS.
Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
Press Scan button.
It will make a log (FRST.txt) on the Desktop.
The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt).
The logs are large, upload them using Zippy ( No account/registration needed ) or upload to a site of your choosing. Give us the links please.

✔ Best Answer
Here's the removal instructions from shopathome:

Most of the page is BS about how great the toolbar is but at the bottom it tells you how to get rid of it. Basically you remove it as an add-on.

You're welcome. Thanks for letting us know how it turned out.

Edit Oh I just noticed you're not the original poster in this thread. You had the same problem posted a few hours ago and were linked here.

"Thanks - I learned something. The program was in the FireFox add on page"

Here is how a USER probably got the add on, no AV would have prevented USER error. Go to any Malware forum & no matter what AV they have installed, they got infected.

As you can see from your logs, you had a lot of stuff installed, that you do not know, how it got installed.
A lot of programs, now give you the choice to install toolbars & other during the install. Either uncheck these items during install, or use Custom install. No more click, click during an install, you have to read after each click.

WARNING: CNET downloads now come bundled with opt-out crapware and toolbars ( Same applies to Softonic & Brothersoft )

I use Softpedia &, they make you aware what Ad-supported programs the author of the program has included.
Sample pages
First and foremost, extra attention needs to be paid during installation as ImgBurn offers to create desktop shortcuts to third-party apps, as well as install a browser toolbar onto the host computer, which are not required to ensure the smooth running of the app.
SS of above.
This is what ImgBurn tries to install.

Use Unchecky to help prevent these third party installs. Nothing is perfect, the badies are always ahead of the goodies, so be vigilant.
A reliable application that aims to protect your computer against third-party components often offered during software installations.
