    Removing Toolbars (IE 6 SP1)

    hi there,

    i have come across a PC where there were two additional toolbar entries. One named Dashboard and the other named some rubbishy thing like ubblbbmb (you get the drift). Every time IE 6 was started, the latter would appear. If you unchecked it, it would still come up later on..

    It appears that the toolbar has been placed their as a "hijack" when someone else has been web browsing. Using Spybot did not seem to remove it.

    Is there a location in the registry (or specific folder) that is used by IE to determine which toolbars that exist and whether they are active (ticked) or not..

    it is very frustrating..

    Any help would be eternally grateful.

    Rgds

    Re: Removing Toolbars (IE 6 SP1)

    There is a handy little tool available at Nuetools, their Browser Extension Manager.
    <hr>You know the feeling. You've installed an Internet Explorer add-on or two, kept some, uninstalled the rest, and now... Something's not quite right. You've extra options on your right-click menu that don't belong. Buttons on your toolbar left over from the unwanted applications. Or maybe the default Search options don't work any more.

    The Browser Extension Manager helps you take back control, fixing these and many other common problems.
    ...

    Dispose of Browser Extensions. Browser helpers, search hooks, Explorer bars - just delete the ones you don't need.<hr>
    Take some time to familiarize yourself with the documentation. It allows you to control a number of different IE settings besides being able to blast unwanted BHO's.
