Hey everyone,

I have a friend who's wondering how to remove some toolbars off Internet Explorer, which are Google, oochchhblly, and REALBAR.
Google is the only one that is in the Add/Remove Programs, and even that doesn't work - clicking on 'Change/Remove' does nothing...

any suggestions? the computer is Windows XP Home, using I.E 6

cheers,
caffy

Start with cool web shredder (http://216.180.233.153/~merijn/files/CWShredder.exe) and see wht that removes.

For Google, install again then remove through add/remove.

Also HijackThis (http://216.180.233.153/~merijn/files/HijackThis.exe) can be downloaded and run. delete all references to the toolbars that are listed. DO NOT play/decide to remove other listings. This program lists ALL settings that can be hijacked whether good or bad.

I take it that you have already installed and run Spybot Search and destroy (http://www.majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=2471) ?
