This morning, as I was about to log off the computer, a slew of programs downloaded on my Dell.  I have been able to uninstall most, but one is very persistent in not being removed, and I cannot find out what it is, who published it, etc. I came home to Google being removed from my default seaarch engines - and who knows what else. 

Can someone tell me what HeartTechPLK.exe is and how I can rid myself of it? I am running a full scan right now thorugh McAfee Total Protection.

We could not find any information about so called executable. Please submit it for a review to McAfee Labs:

You can also execute GetSusp tool to see if there are another suspicious executables present on your system:

We can try finding out additional details about HeartTechPLK.exe if you submit it to VirusTotal and provide hash value of that file:
