An Eternal Quest for Incremental Improvement

Who the heck is this Internet Optimizer

Today I noticed in my IE6 that non-existing sites and other errors are taking me to a site titled "Internet optimizer". I looked into my installed programs and I was quite surprized to see a program called "Internet optimizer" installed. I am puzzled because I never installed this and also I never allowed any auto-install (scripts) from any sites. I uninstalled this damn thing. From then on, the IE6 started throwing up pop-up pages and new pages relavent to the sites that I am visiting. So strange. This is painful. Anyone have an idea about this?
