I recently installed the latest version of the Super video converter and it forced installed this search bar called "Updated Search Bar". I have searched everywhere and cannot find a way to remove it. It is not listed in Windows Add or Remove programs list. Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi cilypudi,

Check your browser (ie, FF, chrome, etc) to see if it was added as an extension...

It may be under a different name...Try disabling each extension until you find the culprit...A reset of FF to it's default state would most likely fix the issue

How do I reset Firefox to its default state?

I'll try restoring Firefox, that should work, thanks for the link. I'm uploading to YouTube at the moment, will do ASAP.
