Default Why is my computer doing this?

Ok so, i recently downloaded a very fancy toolbar ( i thought it would help me, Not surprising, it didn't help me) It brings me to the main search page it offered me, but when i go to the address bar and type Google or Yahoo ( any website) it exits me off when the page i typed is loading. Please help me with this. I don't know whats wrong with it.

You installed a malware bar.

Uninstall it. Then run Malwarebytes and CCleaner. Find any trace of it and delete it.

Yep, first off try the add and remove programs ro "Uninstall a program" (still can't get used to the new name).

Not likely to work but worth a first shot.

Then try MalwareBytes, CCleaner, Windows Defender, Ad-Aware, Spybot is always worth a shot.

Lesson for the future, Toolbars are almost always bad news.

most toolbars are useless, waste of resources and screen space anyway.
Don't download them unless you know that it is gonna make your life noticeable easier.

If you are using Firefox you can go into the add ons and disable it.
