    Thank you Broni, but I must ask something first.
    Is that necessary, because after doing some searching I came across this page http://www.americanpendulum.com/2012/11/13/hao123-toolbar/ and it is said that all I need is an antivirus program to remove it.

    I'm thinking of using Malwarebytes? It a good program, or should I just keep searching for another?
    Thank you for helping :)

    I can't answer your question before seeing some logs from your computer.
    So I strongly suggest you follow my previous reply.
