Most likely youve downloaded a program from Cnet and (unasked) got Blekko with it. How to get rid of it?

Step 1
go to your program list and remove Blekko and at the same time remove the program youve downloaded from Cnet at the time, just to be on the safe side.

Run CCleaner to remove any traces left behind

Go to your browser and set it to your preferred search engine.
Then check ALL your browser settings. I mean ALL.
Wherever you see Blekko remove it, could be 3 or 4 settings.
If its still there then youve missed a setting somewhere.
Check again.

Step 4
and put them on your blacklist.

I positively hate it when people are installing all kinds of unasked garbage on my computer. Ive wasted an hour to figure it all out and to get rid of it.
An hour I could have spent more productively.
$%*&*$@ Cnet and Blekko.
The funny part that they brand therself as "spam free"
I followed your instructions as well as doing a manual Registration clean, I also ran CCleaner and Malwaebyres full search. This removed all blekko from my computer including my browsers IE9 and Firefox, with the exception of Google Chrome where it was still showing. I did a seperate removal on Chrome but to no availl so I ended up removing Chrome altogether.

CNET downloader
I confirm. I just installed some software from CNET and Blekko got installed on all my browsers.
