Toolbar Removal Tools
The toolbars are a popular type of add-on which are installed separately, usually in our web browsers. Toolbars are meant to facilitate us in one way or the other. There are several kinds of toolbars which can be installed to make browsing and searching fun and easy. If we search Google about the definition of toolbar, we’ll get the following definition:
(in a program with a graphical user interface) A strip of icons used to perform certain functions.
Toolbars used to be good and productive but times have changed now. Now toolbars are more of a marketing tool rather than a useful one. Most often than not, toolbars will slow down our browsing experience and result in frequent non-responsive browsers. Some toolbars are still useful like Google Toolbar.
Another dangerous trend about toolbar installation is that now some free utilities are packaged with toolbar installers meaning that installing those free utilities will automatically and usually secretly install the toolbar. It is always a headache removing those toolbars. We will discuss some of the toolbar removal tools which can be very useful if the uninstaller provided with the toolbar fails.
