Oh, boy.

That could be phun.

If I was you, I'd find the directory that Yahoo's in and see if there's an uninstall exe, there.

If not, or it does the same thing, I'd manually delete the damned thing. Afterwards, though, I'd make damned sure that I run a registry cleaner, such as RegSeeker:

to make sure it truly gone.

RegSeeker's sure to find loads of other crap in your registry, too. :D

You sound like you are having all sorts of trouble Shakree, is this all on your computer? If so, it would be worthwhile keeping all your questions, for now in one thread, so you don't get conflicting answers to different problems. Also you won't be asked the same questions or to do the same thing a dozen times. Personally, apart from the learning experience, a quicker and easier solution would be a complete re-format and re-load. Just ensure that your backups are current first.

Did you bother to read my post, before you got out of your pram?

Have you tried RE-Installing the toolbar? Sometimes that will fix an error, or least allow it to be UN-Installed properly... (Note the "sometimes")

Tend to agree with Leigh though, seeing as you seem to be having quite a few issues, a Format and fresh install of ME(?) might be your best bet. (Providing you have the ME CD, or Recovery Disc/s, and know how to safely BACKUP ALL YOUR IMPORTANT DATA FIRST...)

Also, not wishing to annoy you further, but "txt spk" doesn't make it easy to understand the problem, it might help us to help you better, if you used full words... (Posts aren't limited to 150 characters...)

Some of us are getting too old in the tooth to learn a new language! :D ;)

Just because other forums behave in a certain manner, does not make it right.

What is it you are saying? I already know what I know, it's you I have no idea about.

Nor did I suggest that you were! From your text speak, I would suggest that you also have trouble with the written language.

Re-read my suggestion - A Quicker and Easier solution is a re-load. I said before that
apart from a Learning experience

If you have plenty of problems then it is a big deal. A computer is a tool to be used, and it should be available to be used when you want to use it! If your car is not working, you fix it, you don't keep driving and hope that next time you put your foot on the brake, that it might stop! Pity about the train!

If you wish people to treat you with respect, then respect must be shown!
