Not always an easy fix...

I understand the ? and found toolbars in many cases to be a pesky add-on. Some are easily un-installed and others are NOT. its those that make me want to call them malware and further if not un-installable, a minor virus(lack of better name). Which is why I explained if there is NO box to yes/no its acceptance(if reputable s/w), don't trust the s/w you just got that installed it. It can't be a good intention to continue the use of the desired s/w if the toolbar becomes a problem. The only toolbar, I have advised to keep or at least consider are google, ask and yahoo, anything else is suspect. Of course, if it isn't working right afterwards after that recent s/w install, then un-install, don't be greedy, accept the fact the rotten apple has gotten it all bad. The whole point once you "allow the install" regardless of the yes/no box being present you accepted it and it will proceed and do whatever. All any other protection may do is again ask, if you want the install to make changes provided it does even that. Some browsers *MAY STOP* that only if the browser has some enable/disable homepage change, which again may ask for acceptance or stop it cold. In other words, there may not be a standout pgm. that stops this w/o the user being vigilant at some point. Sorry, but some things aren't easy to resolve or have "go to" fix other than I've supplied here. Further, you haven't told us what browser you're using, details matter. Why not check by googling that directly effects your browser.
