My partner is a games fanatic and every now and again ends up with yahoo toolbar on her firefox browser.Is there some way I can blacklist yahoo so it will never be installed on her puter.
She is running XP pro

Uninstall it. And check before you install something. If the install has a custom install, use it

Yeah just remove it, it would be pretty hard to block something like that from installing.

yahoo toolbar installs itself with yahoo messenger even when you uncheck it. Easiest way to uninstall is tools>add-ons> either extensions or plug-ins (I forget which)>find yahoo toolbar and fix it.

You could just disable the add on, that way when the installer checks it will see it is already installed and won't take any further action...
