Disabling IE Addon "Yahoo! Toolbar"
This section provides a tutorial example on how to disable 'Yahoo! Toolbar' in IE (Internet Explorer).
"Yahoo! Toolbar" seems to be a nice IE addon. It gives you quick access to: Yahoo! Search, Facebook, Yahoo! Email, Local Weather, and other Web tools.
However, "Yahoo! Toolbar" does take away space from your browser window to make a "bar" to displays icons for you to invoke its functions.
It is also consuming CPU and memory of your computer.
Here is what I did to remove Google Toolbar in IE 10:
1. Click menu: Tools > Manage add-ons. You see the Manage Add-ons dialog box showing up.
2. Locate and click "Yahoo! Toolbar" in the addon list. Then click the "Disable" button. You see the "Disable add-on" dialog box showing.
3. Make sure "Yahoo! Toolbar Helper" is checked in the "Related add-ons that will also be disabled" list. Then click the "Disable" button in the dialog box to confirm.
4. Close the "Manage Add-ons" dialog box and restart IE. You see IE showing up without Yahoo! Toolbar.
The picture below shows you how Yahoo! Toolbar looks like in IE 10:
