Hi smoopyslittl, you can do it two ways. One go to Star - Control Panel - Add/Remove programs. And you are going to see probably "several" my web search software... you just have to take a really look at it. The other way is running an antivirus software. I definetely recommend Avira AV. it's free and it really works.

How do I add facebook to yahoo toolbaar?


Facebook is one of the most popular social networking sites online and allows members to stay connected with friends online.

If you're an avid Facebook user, you can download and install the Facebook Toolbar, which lets you access your account in a click of a button.

In addition to logging in Facebook, the toolbar allows you to check your messages, view new friend requests, create an invitation and upload photos to your profile.

The Facebook Toolbar is available for Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox users.
Sign in to your Facebook account and type "Facebook toolbar" in the main search field at the top of the page.


Select the "Facebook Toolbar Products/Services" page.

Click the "Download Facebook Toolbar" button.
The "File Download" dialog box will appear on the screen. Click "Run" to begin installing the Facebook toolbar.

The "Facebook IE Toolbar" installation window will open on the screen. Click "Next" to start the installation process.

When the installation process is near complete, you will be asked to restart Internet Explorer to finish the process.


Restart Internet Explorer.
Your new Facebook toolbar will appear at the top of your web browser.

Click on the 'Settings' button on the toolbar and choose 'Add/Edit Buttons.' Click the 'Make a Button' tab. Type in the URL of the Web site you wish this button to navigate to.


Click on your icon of choice to label the new button.

Old yahoo toolbar not yahoo beta toolbar


Uninstall the current version, then my best guess would be to install a program that automatically installs the yahoo toolbar. I believe older versions of Yahoo Messenger can do this. Try them here:

Please give feedback for this answer, thanks.

I want to delete my web search toolbar


On the Menu bar under "VIEW" select the "Toolbars" drop down menu and deselect the toolbar.
This often brings up a dialog box asking if you want to disable the toolbar select "Yes".
You can also try to see if the toolbar is listed in the add/remove control panel and uninstall it from there.
If you are trying to remove the dreaded "MY WEB SEARCH" toolbar(its not clear from your post) do this:
First, uninstall the MyWebSearch option from Add/Remove Programs
1) Click on Start, Settings, Control Panel
2) Double click on Add/Remove Programs
3) Find "My Web Search" in the list of installed programs and click on Change/Remove to uninstall it. You may also want to uninstall any of the following items associated with FunWebProducts.
· My Web Search (Smiley Central or FWP product as applicable)
· My Way Speedbar (Smiley Central or other FWP as applicable)
· My Way Speedbar (AOL and Yahoo Messengers) (beta users only)
· My Way Speedbar (Outlook, Outlook Express, and IncrediMail)
· Search Assistant - My Way
4) Reboot your Computer and run HijackThis or another adware/spyware scanner
5) With HijackThis, scan for and fix any of the entries shown above that may be remaining.
6) Next, open My Computer, Drive C, and double-click on the Program Files folder
7) Right-click and delete the folders for:
· FunWebProducts
· MyWebSearch
8) MyWebSearch should now be completely uninstalled from your computer.
9) There will be some minor registry entries left behind by the uninstall, however these can be cleaned up by running SpyBot Search and Destroy or Ad-Aware SE or left alone.

How do i get my yahoo toolbar back? I installed "my web search" and didn't want it-tried unsuccessfully in uninstall it; now i can't even get to my emails or home page! I don't know much about computers.


I may be of little help. Are you using windows IE, internet explorer. if so on right there is a Tools. Click it and it will list several settings. go to toolbar and if yahoo toolbar is listed make sure it has a check mark by it. I see in you question that you may have tried this. There should be away to restore toolbar. You or somebody may have clicked x on left side of of toolbar.
