Outdated: Removing NetZero Toolbar - Toolbar.dll

This section provides a tutorial example on how to remove NetZero toolbar - Toolbar.dll.

Symptom: When NetZero toolbar is installed on your computer, an extra toolbar shows up on your IE browser as shown in this picture:
IE Addon - NetZero Toolbar

NetZero toolbar offers you a search box and icons for NetZero related services. However, it does take away space from your browser window to make a "bar" to displays icons for you to invoke its functions. I want to remove it.

IE Add-ons List: Click IE Tools > Manage Add-ons, I saw:

ZeroBar   Toolbar   Toolbar.dll

HijackThis Report: In the report, I saw:

O3 - Toolbar: ZeroBar - {F0F8ECBE-D460-4B34-B007-56A92E8F84A7} 
   - C:\Program Files\NetZero\Toolbar.dll

Quick Research: I did a Google search with "NetZero Toolbar" and got a few good matches. None of them report any malicious behaviors.

What I Did: Looked at IE > Tools > Internet Options > Programs > Manage Addon, and disabled "ZeroBar".

Result: NetZero Toolbar is gone!
