It appears that this belongs to the My Web Search program (which I consider to be spyware - but I'm not an expert). I'd suggest scanning your system with AdAware http://lavasoftusa.com/products/ad_aware_free.php or SpyBot Search and Destroy http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
