Two Tool Bars
« on: April 29, 2012, 11:25:21 AM »

When I open my home page in Internet Explorer (IE8)  I see two tool bars for a second or two, both the same, thinking I had inadvertantly added another one I looked ar Add and Remove programmes but can find no additional tool bars except the following.

AlotApp Bar Which I think I can safely remove.

DearPly This too can go I think.

Media Bar Not sure of this yet but think maybe it can be removed.

My Free codec,  Seems ok will keep that.

Yon Too.  connected with face Book, read some forums and the majority seem to think it a pest.

As yet I'll leave well alone but any advise would be gratefully received, also any ideas re the two tool bars appearing.

Hope you all are enjoying the draught!!  It's chucking it down here in Cheshire.

Regards,

Peter

I dont use IE8..  but IIRC if you right click on a grey area on the toolbar it should give you a list of available toolbars and theres checkmarks from which you can choose which to display.

Some stubbourn toolbars deliberataely hide themselves. One of the malware removal tools such as HijackThis is what I use to clear out unwanted BHO's, but I think theres several others that will do similar.

If you run HJT it will list all the BHO's (Browser Helper Objects - or Toolbars) including any hidden ones.
