I'll try to omit objectional content in the future.

The link you gave me does not work, it only shows me how to uninstall a program with add or remove, nothing about search it.

The link acklan correctly provided was for Toolbar - Searchit Information. It has removal instructions for Searchit using Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel.

Many malware programs can be uninstalled by using "Add/Remove Programs" so start there first.

Then download and scan with SUPERAntiSypware Free for Home Users.

If your running Win XP/2000, also download and scan with AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 in "SAFE MODE".
(This is Ewdio 4.0 renamed. If you already have Ewido installed, please update to this version which has a special "clean driver" for removing persistent malware.) Be sure to print out and follow the AVG Anti-Spyware Install-Scan Instructions.

Then perform this online Virus scan: Trend Micro Housecall <- Use "Autoclean" and manually delete what it can't clean.
