Conduit engine - anyone else seeing this?

Today I have started getting pop up advert in the lower right corner of my screen when in Firefox and powered by conduit dot com. I was Googling vehicles and each time I returned to the search page the pop up advert appeared. When using Chrome or Opera and the same search query nothing pops up.

However I went to IE8 and lo and behold the address of the home page is Conduit, which possibly was there as I do not use IE8 but that has been changed in a hurry.

Anyone else experiencing Conduit dot com?

Not here.

There for a while I had problems with my IE home page going to something other than what I had set it too....like it had a mind of its own.

Conduit.com is a toolbar.

Here is a link that might be useful: http://www.toolbarcleaner.com

Thanks for the toolbar cleaner Mickie it did the trick - I hope.

The toolbar was not so much an issue as the retched pop ups that started appearing with advertising. Hopefully all is now well and the toolbar is gone.
