Sunbelt Blogs - The Mysterious Tango Toolbar
QUOTE: Two common themes: nobody seems to know where they get it from, and nobody can uninstall it. Out of all the threads posted, there seems to be only one that potentially gives some specifics with regards a possible source. If you don’t want to read his long ramble, here is his post in a nutshell: “Went looking for Limewire, downloaded a version and now I have Tango Toolbar”.
So either he grabbed a cracked version which comes with the toolbar, or he downloaded something from P2P land which came with a few surprises. Regardless of infection route, it took a while to find the file in question because “It’s called Tango Toolbar and there’s a picture of a red hat on it” doesn’t really help much. This particular toolbar is a mess of broken uninstallers, disclaimers warding off associations with the product and endless people on support forums wondering how it ended up on their computers in the first place.
