hello,
I am having an odd problem. Everytime I go to uninstall Windows Live Toolbar, the uninstall process freezes, forcing me to close the add/remove programs box, then the installation itself.

What can I do to remove this toolbar? I'm switching to Gmail and want the Google toolbar, but I don't want Windows Live Toolbar on my PC.

Thanks for the help,
Jesse

Appears to be an issue.
You could try directing your question to the Windows Live Central Help Page; https://account.live.com/HelpCentral.aspx.

BTW...Happy Birthday Jesse Bassett!! :thumbsup:

Look in Add or Remove Programs for an entry called Windows Live Favorites for Windows Live Toolbar. If it's there remove it first.

If it still give you trouble try removing it in safe mode. If some of its application are running it may not want to be uninstalled out of safe mode.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
