You're welcome!

 

For further reference, always be careful when installing free software. If very often comes bundled up with unwanted applications (toolbars, search engines...). It's mostly adware. When installing your main program, make sure to decline anything you don't need, by removing check marks. Choose a "Custom installation" instead of a "Recommended installation".
