: "Toolbars in Internet Explorer: how do I get rid of them?"
For waht ever reason mine stopped working when auto updates was complete. Any one know how to repair Microsofts Internet browser to restore toolbar and ability to ad and send attachments?
I couldn't find the toolbars when I went to get rid of them.
when i click on the address bar i get all these web pages that i don't use i do i delete them?
I have been carefull to never install Google toolbar, but then there it was! So I went to add /remove and tried to remove it and it caused the page to flash, but the Google toolbar was still there. Refused to remove!
Ok then I went into programs and found the Google folder and deleted it. Then went to manage add ons and disabled the Google toolbar and the browser helper for google.
It's still in the add/remove list, but now when I search I get bumped from search engine to search engine, without control.
Also had Yahoo bar at one time, came with Adobe, but that did remove itself when I tried add/remove. I don't actually see Google toolbar now when searching, but have been shoved into searching roulette, with engines I never used to use coming up without asking.I just did a full restore about 2 weeks ago, and was just getting it the way I wanted it when this Google toolbar screwed it all up. It seems to be packaged with just about everything and if I wanted it don't they think I'd have gotten it without it being shoved down my throat...
This is so very ironic as I have Google as my home page and prefer to actually use Google as my search engine most of the time manually.But now I can start a search manually on Google and end up at Ask Jeeves or wherever. Insane! Is there a chance that there is a fake Google toolbar out there that is actually spyware?
