    Do you have Google Desktop installed? If so, uninstall it.

    One can also download and run adwcleaner, however, be forewarned, go through all tabs and unclick what you know to be good, adwcleaner can be a little caustic. I'm not sure if ToolbarCleaner will help here.

    That's a Chrome icon, isn't it? I don't use Chrome, so can't tell you if it's some option in that browser if you have it installed.
