Yahoo Toolbar


Recommended Posts

Firstly, apologies if this post is against the rules, but I can't find an answer on the forum.

 

I downloaded the latest version of CCleaner on Tuesday (for the 1st time) and ran a scan. Great tool and it's freed up a lot of space on my HD.

 

However, it seems to have installed the Yahoo Toolbar and deleted the Google Toolbar.

 

Any advice on how to delete the Yahoo one?

You should have read every option while installing the tool... the last checkbox asks if you want to install the yahoo toolbar ;)

That doesn't help him. Answer the question "How do I uninstall it?"

 

If it installed for Firefox and it isn't in the Add/Remove Programs option in Windows, I found this link: Yahoo Toolbar removal

 

Let us know how you make out with this.

Thank you, AJ. Yahoo Toolbar has now been zapped and the trusty Google one reinstalled.

 

Interestingly, Yahoo must hide itself within CCleaner (I missed the prompt on the download check list) as it didn't show on my Add/Remove Programs option (and it scurrilously seems to have deleted Google from my system upon installing itself).

 

Damn crafty these software development folks.
