The website www.FixBee.com has a toolbar or application called FixBee that contains Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUP). Potentially Unwanted Programs are applications that contain adwares, toolbars or web browser hijackers. These programs tend to be difficult to remove after they have been installed on your computer.

If you have already installed this toolbar and is unable to remove it, click here to use Adw Cleaner to remove it. AdwCleaner is a very small program and doesn't require any installation.
I do not recommend downloading and installing the FixBee.
