Remove unwanted browser toolbars

As you know many software programs come bundled with toolbars (Yahoo! Toolbar, Ask Toolbar, etc.) and other add-ins that gets installed on our PC with or without our permission.

Actually they are ‘never wanted applications’ (at least for me) as they can collect browsing habits, affects system performance or broadband usage.

Unfortunately, if you try to remove them using Add/Remove program, most often you can’t remove them completely. To help you here is a tool called Multi toolbar remover.

This portable tool lets you remove a few known browser tool bars such as Google Toolbar, Yahoo Toolbar, AOL Toolbar, Ask Toolbar and Comcast Toolbar from your computer.

Multi toolbar remover is clean ( checked with my No32 anti-virus . Check this virus total link) and can be downloaded from here.


  1. Of course tool bars are often creates issues and I too hate them. But this tool only supports only a few known tool bars.I want another one with more options.
