Baidu Browser installed itself

As I wake up my laptop from its overnight slumber, coffee in one hand and an excited dog waiting on his breakfast,  this morning I was greeted on-screen by the “Baidu Browser” already installed, with all my Google Chrome bookmark, icons on my desktop, and fully open flashing at me.

A quick Google didn’t really show much but this has got to be some sort of spam / malware that managed this install.  I’ve already used the program’s uninstaller and we’ll see if that actually clears it.

I’m also running a full virus scan to ensure that nothing else untoward to going on.
