From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scour

Scour.com is now a virus re-direct site since November 2010. Original student founders of Scour.com (Vince Busam, Michael Todd, Dan Rodriques, Jason Droege and Kevin Smilakare; UCLA 1997) are believed to be responsible for the virus redirects to their site. Legal action against scour.com is being taken by users whose computers were infected with the students' virus.

Q: How do I uninstall the Scour toolbar properly?

In Firefox...
On the Scour toolbar, open the options menu by clicking on the arrow beside the Scour logo. Click toolbar settings, and uncheck "404 Error" and "Address Search bar Error." Click "Save." Then go back to the toolbar options menu and select "Uninstall Toolbar." Follow the uninstallation process and restart Firefox.

In Internet Explorer...
On the Scour toolbar, open the options menu by clicking on the arrow beside the Scour logo. Click toolbar settings, and uncheck "404 Error," "DNS Error," and Address search bar Error." Click "OK." Then go back to the toolbar options menu and select "Uninstall Toolbar." Follow the uninstallation process and restart Internet Explorer.
