Try Toolbarcop .It's an old program but quite powerful. Read the hints and help files if unsure.

Which ever uninstaller you use I think you will need to go to safe mode to remove.

Then don't use it.

Download Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware and update. Restart in safe mode and run. Delete all it finds in full scan.

Uninstall toolbarcop as what you've got is obviously a malware of some sorts you get with a freebie.

If the toolbar is on IE then disable it first. Reboot then run malware bytes.

Download SAS, update, and run this in safe mode.

select free version

Then why the query to get rid of it?

If it did no harm then you would leave alone but I bet the toolbar trojan is doing something to your PC. Put it this way, I would make sure it was removed one way or another.
