I had the same problem a little while ago - this is how I solv3ed it ...

From the horses mouth ...

In addition, to prevent IncrediMail from alerting you regarding the change you have made in the future, please do the following:

 1. Open IncrediMail.

 2. Select the 'Tools' drop-down menu and select 'Options..'.

 3. In the window that opens, click the 'Security' tab and uncheck the 'Notify me about changes in my homepage settings' checkbox.

my thanks for the suggestions unfortunately it was not of much help as config is not the same in firefox as described.

Did you try uninstalling it this way...

Did you also look for the small down arrow just to the right of the URL box - when clicked this should give you a list of search engines available - by clicking on "manage search engines" you should be able to delete it.

The configeration is in Incredimail not Firefox - I am using Firefox too, but this has nothing to do with it.

Tools>Options>Security tab in Incredimail!

appreciate your advice but neither options are there.


i do not have incredimail at all i may have mislead you for which i apologise if that is the case

Yes, I thought the download you mentioned was Incredimail - so what was the download that carried Incredibar?

A poster on another forum was successful when locating and removing a programme called WebAssistant which apparently comes with Incredimail/Incredibar and hides the search engine control programme. This article may be of interest.
