There is nothing worse than installing a program that installs other little programs the mess things up.
My wife installed Yahoo Messenger today (Against my better judgment) and it decided to throw in a freaking Toolbar into IE!
The toolbar area on my IE is two bars high. The top one had the menus and the address bar, and the second one has the back, forward, etc buttons. I set it up this way so as to maximize the viewable area.
But now I have this stupid freaking Yahoo! bar!
And get this!
You can’t go into the View>Toolbars and remove it!!!
(This is where this turns into a General Question.)
Does anyone know you to remove the toolbar without uninstalling the stupid messenger program?
Aren’t all these search engine/Directory toolbars the result of Uncle Bill’s policy of world domination. If IE didn’t have it’s own MSN engine set as the immovable default ‘search’ (or preferably not at all), there would be no need for any of these workarounds. Would there ?
Anyhoo, Opera has Google as it’s default search engine - my take: download Opera, plonk the Opera icon on your bottom bar, click and search with Google while surfing with IE.
