PH11235 is on a distinguished road

I had esnips hijack both safari and chrome's homepages and default search engines, as well as appear to cause chrome to constantly alert me to insecure java content. I noticed ads being placed on webpages which never had them in those spots before. For example, an ad kept showing up on yahoo directly under the search bar, which definitely was never there before. It looks like it was caused by an extension I installed called "Codec-M." I was able to delete the files in my apps folder, although I don't know if it installed anything anywhere else on my computer. To get my homepage and default search engines set back to normal, I also had to go into preferences on both browsers, uninstall the Codec-M extension, and then reset my default search engine and homepages manually. Seems like things are back to normal for me now. Hope this helps someone else...
