Toolbars can be downloaded and added to Internet Explorer to add functionality, such as different page formatting tools or a search box.
But some toolbars sneakily install themselves without you realizing, or you may simply not like a toolbar anymore and want to remove it.
Remove a toolbar that's been added to Internet Explorer
1) Locate toolbar add-ons
If you hardly ever use a toolbar or don't use it at all, then it is simply cluttering up your screen. The screen space taken up by a redundant toolbar could be used to display more of a web page.
Click the Start button, then click Internet Explorer. Click Tools, then click Manage Add-ons.
In the window that appears, click Toolbars and Extensions. In the list of toolbars and add-ons in the central pane, click to select a toolbar.
2) Disable unwanted toolbars
Click Disable at the bottom of the window. The toolbar will be removed from Internet Explorer.
Repeat the first step for each toolbar that you want to remove
3) Uninstall toolbars
Disabling a toolbar doesn't necessarily remove it from your PC. To remove a toolbar from your PC entirely, follow these steps.
Click the Start button, then click Control Panel, and click Programs and Features. In the search box, type the name of the toolbar you want to remove.
Click on the toolbar, then click Uninstall to delete the toolbar from your computer.
Some toolbars are the result of more malicious programs that sneak onto your computer and even some kinds of malware.
If toolbar appears that you don't recognise, it is worth scanning your computer for viruses and spyware at this stage.
