Hey.

I have recently reformatted due to a key logging problem and I've now upgraded to IE 7. The trouble is I now have 3 search bars which bug me.
The one that comes with IE7, a custom google one (which I would like to keep) and an AVG one. I tried downloading a registry from flpcnerds.com but the problem is still here. I also cant upload a picture because for some reason I dont have Paint on my PC now. Can you recommend anything? Its not a problem if not the main issue is the search bars.

Many thanks.

Hello Simondo...

The AVG toolbar is an optional install during the AVG installation. The only way I've found to completely remove it is to uninstall AVG and reinstall it without the toolbar.

However, it can be disabled by clicking "View" on your browser's toolbar, pointing to "Toolbars", and deselecting the toolbar in the list.

Right click on the toolbar and deselect "Menu Bar" or "Windows Live Bar" (if that's the one you're talking about).

Can you provide me with a screenshot of the toolbar in question so I can see what it is we need to remove?

Try WinSnap. You can use the "Regional" setting to capture just the toolbar area of the screen.

I uploaded the toolbar! Awsome program, thanks for that.

I added it using Attachments. Hope it worked. How can I upload it into the text box we type our messages in?

Thanks!

Download IE7 Search Bar Remover and run it on the machine. Select the button to remove the search bar, apply the change, and reboot.

Did this do what you want?

You can put the search field back at any time by running this application again and choosing the option to put the search field back.
