    G'day and welcome to the forums.

    You got it in one - malware. A search would have revealed this:-

    Get it from a torrent site?
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Perhaps a format of the hard drive and a clean install. If possible you could trash Safari using App Delete or App Trap to get rid of all associated files, however I doubt Mac OS X will let you remove Safari.

    Also have a read of this link from Search:-

    Not to worry
    You should have kept the download file that you installed codec-m with. In there is a uninstall feature. Very strange for a malware program, but it seemed to work nonetheless. Checked the activity monitor and other system places and nothing out of the ordinary is running.

    Uninstall Coded-M Plugin
    To uninstall this plug in, go to Safari>Preferences>Extensions. Once there you should see the plugin and have the option to uninstall it. Hope this helps.
