Internet Explorer toolbar


When you say "these" do you mean you have multiple toolbar's located on Internet Explorer? If so, and these are toolbar's that you added over time and now wish to remove, go to control panel then click on remove or change programs. At this point, every program on your computer will be presented. Scroll through and choose those that you wish to delete and remove one by one. However, if these multiple toolbar's are "ask" or "cool search" and the like, then your computer is infected with malware. To remove both the viruses and toolbar's, download a free malware removal program such as Malwarebytes Free Trial.

I have too many tool bars on my screen , How do I delete the ones I do not need


Usually happens when one installs a program, application, etc.

You're in the middle of installing, and they want to sneak an anti-virus program in, ( trial offer), or Google toolbar, or Ask.com toolbar, or whatever the 'new flavor of the month is'.

A) Add/Remove Programs:
1) Click on Start (Or Windows logo button), then on Control Panel.
2) Click on Add/Remove Programs.

3) Look down the list, when Add/Remove Programs is fully loaded.
See any toolbar names there?

Probably will not state toolbar with the name, but if you see Ask, Google, etc; that does not look like a program you installed; click on Remove.
(DO NOT remove any Windows programs)

B) Reinstall your internet browser
Have Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, etc?

Download again, and reinstall.
WATCH that you just save your bookmarks, and do not save the toolbars again.

[It will ask if you wish to save your Bookmarks/Favorites, etc.
Yes to that. No to anything else ]

Regards,
joecoolvette

[ I had the Ask.com toolbar, slip in on me the other day! Sheesh!
Deleted that baby fast!
I use Mozilla Firefox. Don't need no cr@p.

When you are installing, look through each small screen.
If you see an advertisement; Ask.com toolbar, Google toolbar, McAfee, etc;
there will be a small square to the left of it, and a Green checkmark in the box.

There also may be two boxes.
Go to the small box on top with the first listing, left-click on the box.
This removes the green checkmark from that box.
Also from the small box below it.

Now click on Next

KEEP a sharp eye on every small window. May have to uncheck a box on a few windows. You can back up to the beginning, and look again. Be SURE before you click on Install.
Usually starts out with McAfee. {Yuck! ]

How can i put ask.com back on as a tool bar i delete but now i want it back on


At the top of your internet browser click View/Toolbars then select Ask.com

If you don't have View at the top of your browser, then Press and Hold the Alt key for 5 seconds, then release it. Then go up and click View/Toolbars and select Menu Bar if you want it to stay at the top of your browser and select Ask.com

You could just reinstall it by going to www.google.com and typing download ask.com in the search box.
