I have already had to deal with this with a few friends and thought since they malwarebytes posted the instructions on how to remove it, I post a link for it here too:

How do I know if I am infected with Windows Optimization & Security?

I also had to use a program called Combofix to remove a program that kept adding it's own searches instead of using Google search.
The file can be downloaded here at:

Description: ComboFix is a program, created by sUBs, that scans your computer for known malware, and when found, attempts to clean these infections automatically. In addition to being able to remove a large amount of the most common and current malware, ComboFix also displays a report that can be used by trained helpers to remove malware that is not automatically removed by the program.

You should not run ComboFix unless you are specifically asked to by a helper. Also, due to the power of this tool it is strongly advised that you do not attempt to act upon any of the information displayed by ComboFix without supervision from someone who has been properly trained. If you do so, it may lead to problems with the normal functionality of your computer.

It is also understood that the use of ComboFix is done at your own risk.

Naw, I was never infected. When I said friends, I actually meant friends and not me. LOL
In fact, one of our work computer was infected as well. I could have fixed it using the stuff above but I said screw them, it's only the computer on the break room.

No problem. It seems that when the new/old site came back online (forums only). Garner used an earlier back up of the site. This is why the dates are way old. So your post really isn't that late.
The link for the combo fix was updated by major geeks containing the latest version of it. Got to love those guys for not changing the location address to the file.
Editor's note: Combofix is frequently updated, so we only provide a direct link to the author to ensure you are getting the latest version. Be sure to download it every time you need Combofix so you have the most recent version.
