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.
