Locked

address bar

By nanat102442 ·
A search engine has taken over my address bar. I need help to uninstall it. I think it is research.com. Please would appreciated any help.

Thanks,
Toby

Have you looked in Add/Remove programs.

Sometimes they actually create an uninstall.

download ad-aware from www.lavasoft.de and install it and run it. Remove any ad sites it finds (You'll want to keep this on your computer and re-run it from time to time).

Checking add/remove programs is good, and ad-aware is good as well. If using Ad-Aware, it doesn't hurt to look over everything and where it is installed before deleting it. You may cripple some valid adware on your system, if you are using shareware/freeware type software supported by advertising.

A file search may also help you remove your search bar files.

Try right clicking above the address bar and making sure that your address bar is being displayed. You may need to uncheck 'lock the taskbars' and drag the address bar to where you want it.
