>>and I don`t think they even notice.
in my neighbours house the other day i pointed out all their toolbars and why do tthey have so many ... the amount of toolbars did annoy them, but they said they didn't know how to get rid of them!
i showed them but i must admit i was at a loss at to how to prevent them installing in the first place ... i actually suggested they install chrome, which i did for them, i'm hoping it doesn't have the same issues re toolbars ...
how do you prevent them getting installed at all - given an unsavvy user - does adblock prevent toolbars beign installed?

It was a while before I realised that Google's Webmaster Tools Site Performance graph was solely based on users with the Google Toolbar installed with the optional PageRank featured enabled. It's reliant on the toolbar phoning home with the information!
I had to uninstall the toolbar from IE as it appeared to be the source of browser problems. However, GoogleToolbarNotifier still keeps on trying to phone home!? There are better plugins available for FF for managing gmail etc. - that aren't compatible with the toolbar!
I had to get the Yahoo toolbar removed from a Vista laptop - that too caused issues!

No argument from me - I've hated toolbars forever and have never operated a browser on my own computer with any.

I agree, I can imagine Andy Hamilton in Old Harry's Game inventing them to torment webmasters.
