It seems a CNET download also downloaded and installed blekko without my knowledge or authorization.

Uninstalling it gets rid of it in the add/remove programs list, but it remains persistent.

I load up Google Chrome and a blekko tab appears.

It changed my browser search default to itself ( I changed it back to my preferred, Google, searcher and deleted IT from search engine options.

Yet, it is still persistent, adds a blekko tab every time I start Google Chrome or IE.

Would like to get rid of this without having to reformat and re-install everything.

Anyone have any suggestions?
