"I understand popups and that TMF has to make money. However, this is disguised as a tool bar search engine, most generally of which, you specifically need to install or approve of before it becomes stuck on your screen."

I don't see it (not even on IE8) so it must be you. If you're getting TMF pop ups then your browser isn't set up very well.

"So my question is, is this a TMF popup? Or am I infected? Should I use the red "disable" buttoon at that link? Has TMF taken to installing a popup search bar, which seems suspicious like it could be a virus or infection or trojan or malware?"

I have no idea what it is but If you think it's malware why the #*&^ would you press a red button? Didn't you ever watch bugs bunny or daffy cartoons when you were a kid? You NEVER press the red one!!
