From both requests for help and uninstall guides it's clear it's a pretty aggressive ad malware, and that "Uninstall" often leaves behind active plugins in all the three largest browsers, changed home pages AND malicious files scattered all over the filesystem!
It might have been included in some "free" software or installed by other another virus or trojan already on the machine. As a result scans by several different AV and malware/Ad-ware scanners is needed and in some cases a clean OS install will be needed to get rid of everything.
