Uninstall Yahoo, Google, AOL, or any other Browser Toolbars

Although the browser toolbars are useful tools for searching the Internet, we recommend that you uninstall these so that your online course will function properly. In your browser, your toolbar (if you have one) will be immediately under the line on your browser where you can type in a web address.

For example:

To uninstall browser toolbars:

Step 1. Click the Start button on the bottom left of your screen.

Step 2. From the Start menu, select Control Panel (if it is visible) or select the Settings option, and then click Control Panel from the secondary menu. A new window will appear.

Step 3. Depending on your version of Windows:

  • For Windows XP, double-click Add/Remove Programs;
  • For Windows Vista, under Programs, click Uninstall a program.
  • For Windows 7, click Programs then Programs and Features
  • For Windows 10, click apps then app & features

Step 4. Locate the toolbar, click on it, then click Change/Remove (XP) or Uninstall (Vista/7/10) and follow the on-screen instructions to remove the toolbar.
