The keyword "DownloadNSave" on the picture is an ad-ware.

You could try to remove it.

I hope you're able to remove this ok. I noticed that the links given are all non-technical sites, so I found a professional link to information about the malware:

http://home.mcafee.com/VirusInfo/VirusProfile.aspx?key=1600594

Notice that the program is not a virus, and that while annoying, it is not very dangerous. They call it a PUP, which is their terminology for an annoying program. Their uninstall instructions are more intrusive than the ones you have, but might be necessary if the program has removal-protection features.

I noticed a link,in the yahoo discussion thread, to removal instructions on their site. Probably the company behind this is trying to stay legal and are required to post removal instructions to do so. I doubt if I would trust their instructions, however.
