Bing, Zugo Ltd, Mozilla Firefox

I'm working on a machine running Firefox that got hit with the Bing toolbar by Zugo Ltd and default Firefox search engine changed to Bing.

I thought of Experts Exchange first, but EHow had this tutorial

I'm left with a couple of questions.  

(1) Is this even a legitimate search tool?

(2) If it has no legitimate purpose, then how do I get rid of it entirely?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
