PDF Creator hijacks my browsers

PDFCreator installs a program called PDFForge toolbar that hijacks your web browser (all the ones you use!) whenever you get a 404 page error (page not found). It sends you to a Yahoo search page, which I can only imagine pays PDFforge for every view.
There is no obvious way to remove it, you have no idea what's doing it. If you look on webforums or google 404 error you'll find thousands of people asking what's going on and how to get rid of it.
TO make it worse I started to uninstall it and it times out. After 5 minutes I pushed cancel and now it's been hung for 20 minutes. It makes me wonder if that's intentional too.
I suggest you ban PDFcreator.
