I-search tool bar

By barlycom ·
How do I get rid of the I-search tool bar that appears every time I log on to IE? I have searched every where I can think of to try to uninstall it but cannot find where it is located.

Try Spybot Serach & Destroy 1.3 http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html

or Adaware SE http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/

Either one of these SHOULD work but lately I ahve found that the new Adaware SE works better for some reason.

Go to this link this is the uninstaller.
http://toolbar.isearch.com/uninstall/

If that doesn't work then do the following below be careful though it is a registry hack.

Once you are done run spybot search and destroy or adaware


Start the registry editor. This is done by clicking Start then Run. (The Run dialog will appear.) Type regedit and click OK. (The registry editor will open.)

Delete 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE \ Classes \ CLSID \ {1C78AB3F-A857-482e-80C0-3A1E5238A565}', if it exists.

Delete 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Explorer\Browser Helper Objects \ {1C78AB3F-A857-482e-80C0-3A1E5238A565}', if it exists.

Delete 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar\{1C78AB3F-A857-482e-80C0-3A1E5238A565}', if it exists.

Delete 'HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar\WebBrowser\{1C78AB3F-A857-482E-80C0-3A1E5238A565}', if it exists.

Exit the registry editor.

Restart your computer.

Start Windows Explorer and delete:
%SystemDir%\toolbar.dll
Note: %SystemDir% is a variable (?). By default, this is C:\Windows\System (Windows 95/98/Me), C:\WINNT\System32 (Windows NT/2000), or C:\Windows\System32 (Windows XP).

Start Microsoft Internet Explorer.

In Internet Explorer, click Tools -> Internet Options.

Click the Programs tab -> Reset Web Settings.
