    If ever a company needed flagging up this one does. This search engine somehow appears on our PC's and apparently is hell to try and get rid of. It really really wants me to use it rather than Google and somehow comes up first when I click my Google short-cut, how does it do that !!

    If it hadn't have been so 'in my face' I may tried it but... it's no real problem to close it and use Good old Google. The sooner it realises it's not wanted the better.

    You will have been tricked into installing it on your computer when upgrading or installing something else.

    Easy enough to remove

    We've got the same problem with the search engine, Babylon that's found its way onto our laptop. Right pain in the wotsit. I thought I had got rid of it once then it suddenly reappeared a couple of weeks later.....nasty little thing. I'll get rid of it eventually!

    Remember when downloading any programs,especially "free" ones, that these often include unwanted add-ons which are installed by default as noted above.

    I suggest that you choose the manual installation option than be selective, e.g. untick any boxes offering to load any toolbars or associated products etc. unless you specifically want to try them.
    If this is choice is not an option personally I would avoid the download.
