✔ Best Answer
What exactly did you install? It appears to be malware.

Firstly pursue response #1.

If that doesn't help then the following two programs are good for finding various nasties that antivirus software can miss:

MalwareBytes:
http://www.filehippo.com/download_m...
(use green icon top right of webpage).

ADWCleaner:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/dow...
This does not install in the normal way. Just download and Save the file using the "Download Now @BleepingComputer icon". This will remove dubious toolbars. You click on the downloaded file then run the Scan. You can paste the Report (log) on here if you wish. Normally it is quite safe to then run the Clean which removes all the junk.

EDIT: Removed part already covered in link at #1.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

IF all of that cannot remove it, then do a System Restore back to the time before you installed it. After the system restore, run Malwarebytes to make sure it is removed. After that, do a search on your system for any folders remaining under the name and delete them as well.

In the future, look carefully at what you install and make sure it is trusted (Google if needed) and then look carefully for check boxes in the installer that can add other programs that you did not intend to install. These appear even of otherwise 'good' free programs in order to pay their expenses. With careful reading, you can at least avoid these going forward.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
