Get CCleaner here

http://www.filehippo...d_ccleaner.html

Open it, click tools, look through the list for it, click to highlight then click run uninstaller

If you use the scan for issues part of this programme, always use the option to make a back up before removing anything.

On a web page, click view, toolbars and remove tick from Yahoo, which doesn't remove it but stops it showing

Click each one from the bottom up, run uninstaller for each, when they are gone, reboot, connect to the internet and re-install Yahoo Messenger, look through the options during install for add Yahoo Toolbar

Check tools, internet options, connections to see it is still set to dial your default connection
