Hallo Guys!

I found this search qu toolbar installed on my computer running Windows 7 professional. The toolbar causes some uncalled for redirects and it has also taken over as the default search engine.

To make it worse, it has also replaced my home page settings automatically.

How can I remove the search qu toolbar for Windows 7 using Internet Explorer 9 browser?

Urgent, please.
