Hey Thereferee21

What kind of Web browser are you using? i had Hola on all my 3 web browsers, That's how i have removed it, i recommend these instructions, i hope they will work for you

On Firefox: Open Mozilla Firefox. Go to Tools >> Add-ons. Select Extensions. Uninstall the following extension: Hola To remove Hola Toolbar. Click the small magnifier icon at the right top corner. Select Manage Search Engines... from the list. Select Search the web (Hola) and click Remove button. Click OK to save the changes. Go to Tools >> Options. Under the General tab reset the startup homepage.

On Chrome: Open Chrome and click on the Google Chrome Menu icon (the three lines on the right hand side of the screen). Then click on Settings. Under On startup, choose the option Open a specific page or set of pages. Then click on Set Pages and delete Hola's page from the list by clicking the small "x" icon beside it. Then click ok. Back on the settings screen under Search click on Manage search engines. If you see Hola Search as a default search, click on a different option and then click Make Default. Then click on done. Once again back on the settings page, click on Extensions on the upper left side of the screen. Remove any Hola extension that you do not want from the list by clicking on the small trash can icon.

On Explorer"

Select Control Panel from the Start Menu. From the control panel select Uninstall a Program. Find Hola toolbar on IE in the list, select it and click on the Uninstall button near the top of that window. Open Internet Explorer. Click on the Menu Icon (the small gear) and select Manage Add-ons. From Manage Add-ons menu, Select Toolbars and Extensions. Uninstall everything related to Hola from the list that you do not want by clicking on the program name and then clicking on the Disable button on the bottom right of the screen. Next, Select Search Providers from the left hand side of the Manage Ad-ons screen. First of all, choose a search engine and make it your default search provider (set as default). Then select Search the web (Hola) and click Remove button to uninstall it (lower right corner of the window). Finally, click close.

All the Best
