Yahoo! Toolbar won't leave me alone

Somehow picked up the Yahoo! Toolbar, and I can't get rid of it.  It doesn't show up in my programs when I try to uninstall it, and when I try to disable it from the Manage Add Ons drop down, the Enable and Disable buttons are greyed out.  It doesn't seem to be re-directing me anywhere, but on the other hand, I don't want it there. 

 

I have Firefox, but the company I work for has a product portal I use every day that will only work with IE.

 

Guido is bummed out.  Help Guido?

 

Thx

 I'd try AdwCleaner.  It wouldn't hurt to run Malwarebytes either.  You can download both from BC.

 

Good luck.


Everyone with a computer should back his system up to an external hard drive regularly.  :thumbsup:

Thanks, but it was on IE, not Firefox.  I can't use Firefox because our portal won't work with it for whatever reason.
