Yahoo Tool bar

  porridge 21:33 09 Oct 2006

For a week now I have been highly annoyed by the fact that when I open Internet Explorer it shows a Yahoo tool bar under the Google one. Where it came from I do not know as I have nothing to do with Yahoo itself in any shape or form.I can get rid of the tool bar by right clicking on it and unticking it from that screen. However, I would very much like to get rid of it altogether. Can anyone tell me how to do this please? Many thanks in anticipation.

To remove the Yahoo! Companion browser toolbar, follow these steps:
1. Start Microsoft Internet Explorer.
2. On the Yahoo! Companion browser toolbar, click the Edit button (it appears as a pencil), and then click Remove Yahoo! Companion on the shortcut menu that appears.

NOTE: If you cannot see the Edit button, expand the Yahoo! Companion toolbar.
3. You receive the following message:
Uninstalling will remove Yahoo! Companion from your browser.
Do you still want to remove Yahoo! Companion?
Click Yes.
4. You receive the following message:
Yahoo! Companion has been uninstalled. Please restart your browser.
Click OK.
5. Quit Internet Explorer, and then restart it.
