Please download AdwCleaner and run it.
 
An image like the one below will open, click on Scan.

Once the search is complete a list of the pending items will be displayed.  If you see any which you do not want removed, remove the check mark next to it.  
 
Click on Clean to remove the selected items.  
 
You will receive a message telling you that all programs will be close so that the infections can be removed.  Click on Ok.
 
When cleaning process is complete a log of what was removed will be presented.  Please copy and the paste this log in your next post.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I think I got this one from a site like CNET where you download programs. During the installation you have to check off "extras" that you DON'T want. I think some of them are set to look like an "accept" button that you might think you have to hit to proceed. The last one I got I had to hit :"Decline" a bunch of times to keep from getting toolbars and having my search provider set to Conduit. Sneaky....

You don't say if your screen shows anything other than Search Conduit.Com but the following helped me, could help you.
