This is adware and was no doubt installed as an option withy something else.

Also see what Microsoft has to say about it (with illustrations), how it arrived and how to remove it -

I see on their forums an MVP recommending the same as in the link I gave, HERE

It doesn't mention it by name but it's the same thing I'm sure.

Thanks a lot. I used adwcleaner and not only did it remove  the Yontoo trojan, but it also cleaned up tons of malware I had. My computer runs fast as new. Awesome! I really appreciate it.
