After browsing the usual website this morning and closing/re-opening my browser, I noticed that the Yahoo toolbar was installed.

Anybody else suffering from this or has it been installed by one of the websites I visited?

Did you update Java lately? I believe the Java installer will load the Yahoo toolbar by default if you don't do a "Custom" install to uncheck the option.

Indeed it does Coop. All toolbars should be banned. Nothing but a nuisance, all of them. :p

whoa coopster, do you have my PC bugged :)
I did a Java update for Open Office yesterday! Thanks.

Dreamcatcher, after the Noscript vs Adblocker issue I would tend to agree although I can't live without the dev and google toolbars

I have the web dev add on installed, just never use the toolbar. I went to see a client the other day, he had about 8 toolbars installed. The web pages started half way down his screen. Strange thing is, I don`t think he even noticed.
