When you start your browser you notice a new toolbar that you do not recognize. Many toolbars are actually spyware and report on your browsing habits. How do you get rid of it? Many toolbars will have a drop down menu that you can click on. From here there may be an uninstall menu item. For some toolbars you may be able to go to “Options” to uninstall. However some toolbars like the one below may not give you that option. So what else can you do?
Another thing you can do is look in the programs list of Install Monitor. You may be able to figure it out from looking at the names and dates of the programs. The Find Window tool () is also useful in this regard. It will identify the program in the program list when you drag the mouse over the toolbar. This actually works for other windows as well and not just toolbars. Once you have identified the program you can use program tree to find out how it got installed. In many cases simply forgetting to remove a checkbox can result in unwanted toolbars. From here you can use Install Monitor to remove the toolbar and any other unwanted programs that were installed at the same time.
