Out of Control Toolbars

Tags:

My latest computer peeve is all these programs that try to slip in these annoying "tool bars". Yahoo is notorious for doing this, you install the Instant Messenger and the installer tries to slip in the toolbar. The bar usually touts "enhanced" search which really means more ads not mention in some of the less reputable companies the tool bar can be malware.

What I hate is that these things are becoming harder and harder to avoid, it seems as though everything you install these days wants to install one of these bars or other unwanted software. I've found the most effective way to avoid them is to use custom install features where possible, the custom install usually lists all the options/features available on a install.

The tool bars are easy to remove, just go to the control panel and uninstall from there.
