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 the cleaning process is complete a log of what was removed will be presented.  Please copy and the paste this log in your next post.

I received the following in a PM from Oldfekker.  Being new they weren't aware that they should address their topic in the forum it is posted in.  No big thing.  So I'm posting the content of the PM so that others will be aware of what is going on with his issue.

 

Hi dc3.. Thank you so much for the advice, I was really born too soon. Dec. 27/1937..Super, no more Pro Optimizer.. I'm trying to get Google back for my searches, but Bing of course keeps trying to push them out---guess that's a matter of uninstall..Thanks again, really appreciate the help. Take care...

Glen, please post the browser you are using and I will provide you with instructions to set Google as your search engine.

What version of Internet Explorer are you running.  The instructions in the video are for IE 7&8.

If the video goes by too fast for you there are written instructions below the video.

 

The one you want is titled "To change the default search provider".
