How do I uninstall the Google toolbar?

Asked by HungryGuy (16008points) March 16th, 2010

I went to YouTube yesterday, and suddenly it told me that I’m not allowed to watch any videos unless I download the latest Flash Player. I scratched my head because I already have the latest Flash Player. But I clicked on it anyway, and it took me to the Adobe site where I downloaded it. After it finished installing, what it installed wasn’t a new Flash Player, but the Google toolbar (What ever happened to “Don’t be evil”?). Now, the Google toolbar has a lot of nifty features that I like. If circumstances were different, I’d probably keep it. But considering the way they tricked me into installing it, I want to get rid of it! How?

Go to control panel, click add or remove programs, select google toolbar, and then click remove. the end.

Unless it added it to FF add-ons, in which case, Tools>Add-Ons, find Google Toolbar and either click disable or uninstall.

I want to do more than just disable or hide it. I want it off my system as if I never had it!

The two solutions above will do just that depending upon where it was installed. I included “disable” as a choice, just in case.
