Remove unwanted toolbars from any browser

Remove a toolbar step by step

You might think that deleting the free program that the add-ons came with will solve the problem. Nope. Toolbars are separate programs, so you have to go after them individually.

To get started, you can uninstall the toolbars and plug-ins in the same place you'd remove any Windows program. I'll show you how to remove all traces of unwanted programs in this tip.

You'll need to look for the toolbar name - such as Ask or Babylon. Sometimes, the toolbar is listed under a company name, so check program install dates for things installed most recently. Remove any names you don't recognize.

However, uninstalling a toolbar won't always remove it from your browser, and many toolbars don't show up in the program list anyway. So, you have to take another approach.
