Hi - some time ago Iobit toolbar started to put itself into the top of the screen at irregular intervals.
I disinstalled Advanced Windows care with Revo thinking to get rid of it. It has now decided to fix itself as my homepage. Even if I untick the toolbar option for Iobit it keeps coming back, now every time.
I have ticked options on the toolbar - uninstall - nothing happens. I have tried uninstall through firefox addons, I restart Firefox and there it is again. I can't find the uninstall ex. on my computer.
Probably my fault, any ideas please?

Thanks for the rapid answer. Yes, I looked for it, it doesn't exist on my computer (Google Desktop search found it as a file that no longer exists)

You could try our new program BitRemover 1.0 that is specifically designed to remove every last bit of debris that is left after uninstalling a product from IObis.

It also has an option to remove the IObit Conduit Toolbar.

More info and download here.

In Windows 7 you need to right click on the Firefox Icon and select Run as Administrator. You will then be able to uninstall without any problem.

This is because Firefox is not a Microsoft program, unlike IE.

I battled to find a solution for months and then asked my son and he had the answer thumbup.gif

Cheers
