Yahoo Search Bar

[ Edited ]

This search bar came with installed on the HP Pavilion I have, and I was wondering if there was any way to remove it. It takes up alot of room on my taskbar and I can only get three boxes before things fold into themselves. Thanks for any help.

Re: Yahoo Search Bar

I have the same problem on my HP Pavillion TX1000 notebook, but neither of those options worked. The little arrow shows yahoo search is already unchecked (but it's still there!) and add/remove doesn't even have yahoo search in it. This thing on my taskbar is reeally annoying! Please help!
