Dear Computer Lady,
Somehow I get extra toolbars across the top of my page and would like to get rid of them. But I can’t figure out how to do it.
Help, please, Janice
I have been fixing a lot of computers lately that have multiple toolbars and coupon programs installed. These toolbars and programs usually slow your computer down, display unwanted advertisements, and sometimes make it impossible to navigate on the internet.
Getting rid of them is sometimes easy, and sometimes very difficult. First, you can go to the control Panel, click on “Uninstall A Program” and try to find the toolbar in the list of programs.
Some toolbars are listed here, and you can simply click on them, then click “Uninstall” in the toolbar.
Other toolbars are hidden and more difficult to remove, and require quite a bit of searching on your computer. If you cannot find the toolbar you want to remove in the Control Panel, I would suggest you bring your computer to a local repair shop and have them clean the computer up. This is something that I do for my customers all the time.
It’s Your Turn: What do you think?
