    Hy Ganesh,
    Firstly wishing you happy DIWALI…!!! :)
    Well, I too ave made many mistakes when I was new to this browser stuffs and used to download anything without taking care of what can be the after effects for the same.
    A month back those stupid strange looking toolbars used to harass me a lot but then I found a way out of it.
    Thank you so much for sharing this. I am sure if next time this happens to anyone your article is going to work out worth a read. :)

  2. Hi Ganesh,

    Happy Diwala! In Bangalore today, lots of fireworks ;)

    Thanks for sharing the tutorial!


  3. hi ganesh. thanks for sharing these tips. i bookmarked it since i also do not like having toolbars in my browser. i avoid installing anything unless they are plugins. i only have Alexa Toolbar ..that’s it.

  4. Hello Ganesh,
    Yes sometimes toolbars become annoying and even if they are not annoying, People hate them. However, Some toolbars are installed as an addon (Specially in Firefox) and that becomes difficult for users to remove.

    • Yes Sumeet,

      I appreciate your comment. Add-ons in Firefox, few extensions in Google Chrome and other toolbar installed in the PC create a lot of problems in surfing and these need to be removed.

      Thanks for your comment. Have a nice day :-)

  5. This post is a life saver as i have been battling with toolbars on my browser for long, now i have even an easier way of eliminating them. thanks for sharing.

  6. Hi Ganesh,

    You have created a great content, I was looking a permanent solution to my problem and again you helped me. Now, I can browse more freely. Thanks for the tips.

  7. Hi Ganesh,

    Thanks for the post. My Firefox is infected by ‘WebCake’. Though it does not appear to be much malicious, but it aggressively displays Ads. Two ads on left and right sidebars and one ad on the bottom bar is too much for anybody.

    As you told, I did not realized when I downloaded and gave permission for this application to install. It is really hard to browse websites as there will be tooooo many Ads on any page as the webmaster displays some ads and this WebCake will display another whole lot of ads.

    Because I use Chrome primarily, I was always feeling lazy to reach up to my control panel and remove this application. But if I need to use Firefox more often, I must remove this application.

    BTW, it appears that your commentLuv stopped working for some reason.

    Nice post! Some times when we install some free software like utorrent, it will install annoying toolbars to our browsers. So we must immediately uninstall it.

    Hey Ganesh,

    I try my best to be so careful when I install software and programs because so many times I’ve ended up with these annoying toolbars and stuff that I could have sworn I never approved. Sometimes when you go to uninstall that program it still remains and I’ve had a heck of a time getting rid of some of those. You have that happen enough times and you’ll definitely pay more attention.

    Thanks for this share because I know it happens to us all.


    • Hello Adrienne,

      Thanks for your nice comment. It is true that we all face this problem, and we hate it very much. So, we need to solve this problem. Yeah, if you are getting the problem even after uninstalling the problem, check the properties of your browser and check in the target field, if it redirects to that annoying home page. You have to perform that also. Thanks for reminding me. I forgot that and will now update this post. Have a nice time :-)
