I will keep this brief, but my girlfriend downloaded Google Earth and added those little annoying toolbars with it. The toolbars were easy to remove (Firefox) but there's one noticable item: When using Firefox's search box, the results come back with the typed word(s) and additional "ei". Example, facebook comes out facebookei. Addtionally, it shows up as W3i Yahoo Search Results.

 

Thanks for any and all help and advice you can give.
