    How can I get rid of the Google Toolbar? The add/remove programs won't work for it. If I highlight it and click "add/remove," the list just jumps back to the top and nothing happens.

    What do you mean buy jumps back to the top? Add/remove should remove it. After you have removed it you will have to close & reopen any IE windows to see that it is gone

    The Google toolbar has a mind of its own. That's why I got rid of it quite a while ago.

    You can delete it with Hijack This. You will see a 03 entry that says Google toolbar. I saw it in your log in your other thread.

    Have Hijack This fix that entry.

    Hi Boo,

    I wouldn't be surprised if Google's toolbar causes pop-ups but I don't know for sure. I just remember that it kept putting a little icon on my task bar that I didn't want and when I tried to get rid of it, it kept coming back.

    That was before I knew anything about Hijack This and I asked for help here to delete it and was told to get rid of it that way and it did the trick.

    I just found the little bugger to be intrusive, but I know lots of people have it and like it so it's a matter of choice.

    Hello Cookiegal

    Are you absolutely certain that the toolbar you are talking about was google toolbar or was it an older version of one of googles search tools. I had never heard of it placing an icon in the task bar or being intrusive in any way.

    I would be keen to hear of anyone else's experience with this.

    No, it was definitely the Google toolbar. I remember downloading it because I thought it would be handy and it had some neat features.

    I've also read older posts and there is controversy as to whether or not it is spyware as it does collect information about sites visited, etc.

    This was quite a while ago and things may have changed since but when that little icon showed up and I couldn't get rid of it, that was enough for me flush it. I like to be in control of my computer and not the other way around :D

    I agree with Cookie about the google toolbar. I also got rid of it but I do like the google deskbar. It's much better and no problems with it being intrusive.

    Are you running version 2.0.108? The only reason I use it is because of the excellent pop-up blocker. Have never noticed a taskbar icon.
