    Kill Yahoo Toolbar (IE 7 Beta 3)

    I cannot get this garbage (sorry) off my system. Since I keep having to reinstall Flash and now this toolbar comes with Flash unless you opt out, one time I forgot to opt out and now I cannot get rid of it. Neither the Control panel or its own uninstall work
    Has anyone else seen anything like this? Is this because of IE7?
    Thanks

    fixed it myself- went into safe mode and then the uninstall in control panel worked. I just wonder if this is the only way to do it?

    Hmmm, I recall a link between Adobe Reader and the Yahoo! toolbar, but didn't know it was now "bundled" with the Flash player. Anyway, if you don't have an option NOT to install it, which really should be an option, and you want to remove it after it install, then Adobe directs you to this help page at Yahoo.com: How do I remove Yahoo! Toolbar for Internet Explorer? - Yahoo! Toolbar.

    The option to not install is opt out, and I forgot to do it since it was at the bottom of the page and my window was not maximized.
    I did try to uninstall with both those approaches but they did not work till I went into safe mode.
    I am just wondeing if the uninstall for some reason does not work in IE7 <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>
