Is there any way to delete toolbars after they're on the computer?

One can generally disable toolbars from an options/preferences screen within the toolbar. Alternately, add/remove programs can remove a third-party toolbar, like Yahoo Companion. Another method would be to run msconfig, go to the startup tab, and uncheck the undesired startup items.

Thanks Ali...I did some further searching on one of the toolbars....turns out it's Intelligent Explorer, which is spyware. They have an "uninstall" program which--surprise--doesn't work! I'm getting so frustrated with this thing.....

http://lavasoft.element5.com/software/adaware  for Lavasoft's Ad-aware and  http://www.safer-networking.org/index.php?page=download  for SpyBot, both very good programs for finding and removing annoying pc critters. I use both, as each picks up things the other misses.

Good huntin!

Oh, forgot to mention...they are free for personal use.
