View -> Toolbars -> uncheck appropriate option.

Items that add things like this usually live in your Firefox plugins folder, usually located at C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\plugins. Google each filename that's in this folder, see what it is and you'll find out which file(s) to remove.

I did some checking, and based on what I am seeing I would get a check from the malware staff to make sure your not infected with malware. The toolbar is known to be associated with other malware installs.

I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post a HiJackThis Log in THAT forum. If you are unable to run and/or post a HJT log, then post that in your initial post in the topic you create in that forum.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
