Yahoo Toolbar - Where did it come from?

  Pesala 19:39 01 Oct 2004

I just cleaned up a bit, and noticed Yahoo Toolbar in my Add/Remove programs list. Needless to say, I didn't install it to my knowledge. Any idea how it got there? Is it safely removed by clicking on remove from the Add/Remove programs list?

I am using Windows ME.

I think maybe somone did put it there as it takes a little fiddling to download and install, it can be removed safely, that i am sure of.g

I didn't install it knowingly.

It's in my add/remove too. I assumed it got there when I downloaded Yahoo messenger (although I thought I told it not to install the toolbar - strange).

Actually, just noticed it's messenger explorer bar so no prob.
