Try right clicking on the toolbar and go to customise, delet it from there.
If it has embedded itself, a good spyware detector should be able to remove it. Download / install/ update / run both ad-aware (www.lavasoftusa.com) and Spybot (http://security.kolla.de).
Use a browser that doesn't get hijacked with this sort of rubbish, type firefox (www.mozilla.org/products/firefox) or opera (www.opera.com)
