Remove Sweetpacks tabs

Sweetpacks got into my browser without my permission. I really have no idea because I never installed any programs lately. This morning, I just noticed that this thing has managed to modify my settings. Sweetpacks appears on Tab of Mozilla Firefox as well as Google Chrome. Added to that, this virus also changes my home page with search of its own.

Personally, I don’t want Sweetpacks on my computer. Even though someone from the web says that it is a tool, still I am not fond of it. I found it annoying and distractive. The way it enters the computer without seeking for permission only verify that it has a virus-like activity. So everyone must beware of Sweetpacks.

Please give me some advice on how to change my browser back to its original settings. How can I remove Sweetpacks tabs from Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome?
