Can't remove the Yahoo! Search toolbar (Vista OS)

I have a new Compaq (HP) Presario with Vista. I am unable to remove the Yahoo! Search toolbar. I try and use Google as my default, and remove Yahoo! Search, but it never stays that way. I used regedit and removed what I thought was the Yahoo! Search toolbar, now my default is nothing, but that stupid y!s toolbar is still listed as a choice. It is not in my Control Panel/Programs & Features/Uninstall list either. I read that it may be in HP Advisor, but I am having no luck finding it. Help me remove this troublesome toolbar.

    None of those worked. I am running IE, but Yahoo! Search is NOT listed in any of these areas. That is what is so frustrating.

It's an Internet exporer Add-on!!!

So Just disable it in IE (Internet Explorer)

Also In September, Upgrade from Vista (****)

To WINDOWS 7 (Awesome!)

Windows 7 is more secure, faster, more user friendly, more powerfull, and uses less resources than VISTA........

Windows 7 is far more stable too.

    Start> Control Panel >add/remove programs........toward the bottom..........UNINSTALL yahoo software.



    otherwise, install Windows the Clean Way......Borrow a Retail/OEM Windows disc of the same WindowsVersion you run......... and install that, using your current license.......... update everything...........make sure that you back up every thing onto DVDs/CDs/FlashDrives/External Hard Drive/etc.... FIRST.

If you are using firefox browser then you need to go to
tools-> addons-> plugins and then in that find yahoo! search toolbar and uninstall it.

for internet explorer
tools->manage addons->enable or disable addons-> disable or remove the yahoo search addon.

I have installed XP in Compaq Presario Laptop. I have configured audio. But I get the error message "Driver Installation Failed: Could not find the MEDIA device for this driver." Please give...


I would try a newer operating system like Windows 7 which is the current operating system supported by Microsoft and likely would install the audio driver automatically off of the Internet.

If you're set on XP running it, try to search for the driver on the HP.com website under 'v3000z driver'.

Well yes and no. I believe you're asking if you can remove vista to install xp? It is possible to do so however HP/Compaq use a proprietary software to "tattoo" the motherboard which designates the unit as either a Vista computer or Other OS computer. Though it is possible to install and run XP on a Vista machine, complications may arise causing things like the OS to not properly validate and other software related issues.
