    Somehow I have become the recipient of an unrequested and unwanted yahoo toolbar that is refusing to vacate my computer screen.

    Any and all guidance as to how to terminate this pest would be very welcome. Thanks!!

    Go into your add/remove programs folder, highlight it on the list and click "remove" or "uninstall".

    In Firefox:

    You could also use BHODemon to reign in any and all BHO's (Browser helper Objects, like toolbars).

    You could also try using Revo Uninstaller to get rid of not only it, but any traces it may leave behind.

    Thanks Trotter, I'm using Firefox, and the removal was a snap!

    Thanks again.
