Do you have "Local" admin rights?

Click on Start - > Run.

Type: compmgmt.msc and hit enter

Click on the plus next to "Local Users and Groups" Click on Groups

In the right hand pane double click on Administrators.

See if anything to do with your name, admin, or administrator or whomever you're logged in as exists in that group.

If not, you do not have local admin rights.

As long as you are part of one of those domain groups, then you should be able to remove and install anything you want.

Google toolbar should be listed in Add\Remove. Is this what you're trying?
