We are testing the toolbar watching for transmissions of data, but so far they only re-direct the user to Infospace when mistyping a URL.  Also, the installation doesn’t show in Hijackthis as any register changes for the 404 page. 

New sites:

Idealproductgroup.com
Idealgamebar.com
Idonatesearch.com
Idonatesearch.org
Idonatetoolbar.com
Idonatetoolbar.org
Igamebar.com

We are continuing to research this…
