Two things:

First, in my recently installed programs, I saw a program called "Google Toolbar for Internet Explorer" , by Google Inc., but it uses two circles with eyes in them. Anyone know if it's legit?

Also, "Google Talk Plugin" which has no icon, but done by "Google" that too?

Also, when I changed users, Windows notified me something needed a password to access the router, but at the bottom, the icons were pretty low res, A G in a circle, and a A with a line arcing above it. I just closed them.

Anyone know about these/had a run in? Mcafee isn't picking up anything, but... meh.

Run Malware Bytes. If you don't have it this is the download for the free version.

You can get rid of the Google talk and Google Toolbar if you don't use them, but they're legit.

Not sure about the router login, did you install any extra software when you set up your router (Netgear Genie, Linksys Smart Wifi, whatever Belkin uses) ?

Didn't have to install anyone.
