An Internet Explorer Toolbar is an optional program that increases the functionality of Internet Explorer by enabling PC users to perform certain tasks within their browser. While toolbars can be helpful in providing a quick access to frequently used programs and services, Internet Explorer toolbars can slow the performance of a PC. As a result, it may be helpful to delete Internet Explorer toolbars. One of the easiest and safest ways to remove toolbars from Internet Explorer is by using the Windows Add/Remove Programs tool.
Steps to Follow
- Close all Internet Explorer windows, click on the Windows Start button, and then select "Control Panel" from the Windows Start menu.
- Open the Add/Remove Programs tool by double-clicking on the "Add/Remove Programs" button. A dialog box will open containing a list of all programs installed on your PC.
- Find the toolbars you would like to remove from the list of programs, click on the toolbar, and then select the "Remove" button. If you use Windows Vista or Windows 7, be sure to click on the "Uninstall a Program" link.
